Photo of the Week: Upthrust stone formation on Highway of Legends

Backbone ridge wall on Colorado's Highway of Legends

The Highway of Legends is a hidden gem in southern Colorado in the foothills of the east facing part of the Sangre de Christos. This scenic road may be accessed from Walsenburg, CO to the north or Trinidad, CO to the south.  If you go, bring your camera; you won’t be disappointed. Besides gorgeous scenery, the rewards include fabulous geology and lots of history.
