We drove through the grassland from La Junta. Watching the landscape change from fairly dusty, dry and barren to this unique vegetation and bluffs was amazing. Surprising amount of wildlife. Would love to return and explore further!

It's a fine view from the train between La Junta and Trinidad, CO. There are fantastic dinosaur tracks here if you hike in.
