Hate to even tell anyone about the greatness of this area. My favorite is driving through Florence to get to Westcliffe. Great small western town, with some good summer music festivals, and one of the most beautiful views of the Sangre de Christo mountains across the valley, and the Wet Mountains up behind the town. Very old west feeling. Fun... More

Start at I-25 Pueblo then drive south to the Colorado City Exit. There are two good restaurants right off the Interstate, plus a nice visitor center. Then keep going on 165 to San Isabel for a beautiful drive through the lush Wet Mountains. Lake Isabel is gorgeous and there's a decent restaurant there--more an experience than great dining but you're... More

When You think of all the stories about how beautiful the Colorado Rocky Mountains are, You begin to wonder if people were just listening to too much John Denver or a little to Rocky Mountain High! Then You get here and You'd have to be deaf, dumb and stupid not to be completely impressed with this vista! Hey Honey, When's... More

The wet mountains are beautiful. Full of coyotes, bear, fox, etc. I was able to visit for 2 weeks and found it fascinating how the mountains never got boring to look at. The Sun made all the difference. I was there for the first snowfall and saw the mountains glisten in the sun. Great place to visit.

Take a loop drive from Pueblo, Co. This is my most favorite mountain drive in Colorado. The Wet Mountain valley is about as grand as it gets. The view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range from Wet Mountain Valley is unparalleled!! Take your Camera!!!!!
