Colorado Backroads

There is so much to see here in Colorado, lots of which folks who have been here for years didn’t know existed. A great example is the Paint Mines Interpretive Park in Calhan, about 35 miles east of Colorado Springs. An open air wonder that you can explore at your leisure. Caution, there are no facilities at the site that we were able to find.

Then for a different twist, take the Old Stage Coach Rd into Gold Camp Road, west of Colorado Springs for a dirt road drive thru spectacular rock formations on to Cripple Creek, Co.

And in between the two, you can find Helen Hunt Falls. Take it in from the base or hike the stairs past the lower to find the upper sections.
