Colorado Springs is full of delightful places to spend an afternoon. As I continue to write Colorado Staycation posts I must include Cheyenne Cañon and Helen Hunt Falls. Located in southwest Colorado Springs the Cañon can be found along the same route from downtown Colorado Springs to the Broadmoor Hotel and the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
Mesa Verde, a stop along the way.
Highway 160 Road Trip
Exiting I-25 at Walsenburg, Colorado, onto Highway 160 leads to a long westward drive to a wealth of beauty and interest. This most certainly includes Mesa Verde, just east of Cortez, Colorado. In early June 2015 I planned a road trip to the Grand Canyon with my daughters and our exchange student Lea. Mesa Verde and 4 Corners Monument were “stops” along the way.
Mesa Verde. Is so much more than a stop along the way!
