There is nothing like the Wet Mountain Valley. Activities for everyone year yound. Hunting, fishing, hiking, picnicking, horseback riding or just plain nature loving.

We were looking for a trip that we hadn't done before and so headed south west of Pueblo to Wetmore and the Wet Mountains. We ended up doing the driving tour we found online and it was a pretty drive for a short 100+ miles.
