    Sadie, our tour guide was informative, genuine and ready to answer any questions. The house has all original furnishings and a great story. Our tour took 2 hours. Well worth the small admission price.

    Visited this museum today, and what a delight it is - a must see for anyone who like aircraft. The staff and volunteers couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. A great place to visit.

    San Isabel National Forest is beautiful, 15 degrees cooler than the flats, and free.
    It is a beautiful place to hike, perhaps camp if that's your thing. Lots of trails, lots of road that make hiking easy. Beautiful Vistas! You can see Kansas from up on some of those mountains!

    I have only been there spring, summer and fall. Never been one for cold weather outings so I can't say about the winter season. (but I have seen the effects when I go out early spring.)

    The smell of pine permeates the air. There is often running water nearby that you can hear. The ground is rocky where others have tread but soft with tree litter, pine needles and moss if you get off the trails.

    Be careful about the altitude...it will sneak up on you. In the 60's the roads and trails were filled with Olympic athletes preparing for the Olympic Games in Mexico City. They were acclimating to the altitude expected in Mexico.

    We were just passing through Pueblo and stopped here for what we thought would be just a short stroll and a quick lunch. We were amazed at how beautiful the Riverwalk is. It's all done with beautiful attention to detail and good taste. The artwork and landscaping is beautiful and everything was spotlessly clean. If you're passing through Pueblo don't miss spending some time here.

    We visited Pueblo and wanted to see the Rockies. Denver is a city, Colo Springs is on the edge, Pueblo is on the flats...But the Wet mountains is right there and you can drive and ride all through them.

    You see the A-Frame houses all over. The see the water from springs and meltwater working its way down the mountains. Beautiful trees you don't see at lower elevations! And deer or elk now and then.

    Hiking is convenient but be careful, the high altitude will have you seeing stars. Maybe driving down a road would be more comfortable. Lots of those as you climb up in altitude.

    Up top we got to see a castle. Bishops Castle is an experience.

    The Raptor Rehabilitation Center is an amazing connection between species. The knowledge of the humans, the compassion of the volunteers, and the personalities of the raptors, themselves, is such an uplifting experience. Not only go see it, but support it!

    Great zoo if you are going with small children. Wasn't very busy lots of room to run around not so big they can't get all the way around by themselves. Older zoo so the e ibits do need some TLC.

    A great museum and the staff is really knowledgeable about the history and the currently running steel mill. Learned a lot about the history and especially the 1913-1914 strike and massacre. So sad. A whole lot of history in the cool former infirmary. Well worth the visit. Also got our grandkids some geodes to smash and uncover! for only $5!

    My wife and I recently visited the Medal of Honor Gallery at the Center for American Values along the Pueblo River Walk. Very educational, very inspirational, very humbling. Pictures with quotes from 150 living Medal of Honor recipients -- WWII to today. What rung so true: their words were not about themselves or their actions; rather they were about their love of this country, their belief in the principles of the Constitution, and their dedication to their comrades in arms. Give yourself an hour+ to watch the opening video, read every quote, see every picture, and listen to the docents update you on the lives of the American heroes. For 1st time visitors: free parking 1 block away & no admission charge. Do yourself a favor: visit this Gallery!

    The Gallery was incredible! We went to see the Vital Waters exhibit that features Ansel Adams' work, and it was beyond compare. The flow of the curated work was phenomenal, the docent noted that Adams' daughter-in-law arranged the flow of the event and she did a phenomenal job! The quotes and stories sprinkled throughout the exhibit were enlightening and on point. Would 100% recommend for any photography fans, and especially for any Ansel Adams fans.

    Another notable exhibit was the second floor photographs on the flood in Pueblo. Incredible photographs of a devastating event in Pueblo's history. It's amazing to see those photos and then walk along Main Street and see the buildings that were effected by the flood 100 years ago.

    The ceramics exhibit was also wonderful on the ground floor. All in all, a fabulous way to beat the heat in Pueblo and soak in some visual culture. Will absolutely be back, and would love to visit the Children's Museum next time.

    None of the photos displayed are of Bear Lake located in the San Isabel National Forest. Even the thumbnail appears to be of the Bear Lake near Estes Park!

    Bear Lake is located 90 miles and two hours south of Pueblo, Colorado in the Culebra Range of the Sangre De Christo Mountains at a 10400 foot elevation, adjacent to the Bear Lake Campground. The lake is located at the end of Huerfano County Road 422. 422 departs from CO 12, also known as the "Highway of Legends" that connects La Veta and Trinidad, Colorado. 422 is 5 .1 miles long over a very washboarded road.
    Once arriving you will be at a NFS day use area which charges $7 dollars per vehicle, per day. Once the fee has been paid you are free to use the other day use areas whithout additional payments. The lake is stocked throughout the season for the fishermen and you are allowed to carrying in nonmotorized watercraft for use on the lake. A network of trails connect Bear Lake with Blue Lake, another day use spot in the area.

    Full Disclosure: I only offered basic information, not opinion as I am the Host at the nearby Bear Lake Campground.

    Unexpected memorial in Pueblo Colorado that is really well put together. On each of the statues is the story of the Medal of Honor recipient. There is plenty of parking right in the lot.

    As an historian who enjoys visiting Civil War battlefields and old mining camps and ghost towns in the Old West, driving the several scenic byways in Colorado offers a unique opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the Ute Indians, Spanish and American explorers, traders, fur trappers, homesteaders, ranchers and gold prospectors who viewed the snow-capped mountains, jagged canyons, lush meadows, aspen-covered hillsides and Victorian towns. Frontier Pathways Scenic and Historic Byway, which was designated a National Scenic Byway in 1998, is one of 13 National Scenic Byways in Colorado. Don't miss it. It is a 103-mile-long wishbone-shaped highway heavily steeped in Colorado history. Start on Highway 96 West in Pueblo. The land near Pueblo was very important to past inhabitants, including fur traders and trappers who made a living in the Rocky Mountain foothills, Ute Indians who made their homes in the region and Spanish conquistadors who explored the area in search of gold or El Dorado or the fabled Seven Cities of Cibola. Pass Lake Pueblo State Park with its 4,646 acres of water, then the San Isabel National Forest where you will get spectacular views of the peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. At the junction of Highways 96 and 165, continue west on Highway 96 to the small sister towns of Silver Cliff and Westcliffe. Backtrack to Highway 165 South to Bishop Castle, perhaps the most intriguing tourist attraction on the entire route. Still unfinished, the colossal structure is 160 feet tall with a grand ballroom, an extraordinary piece of architecture. Back on Highway 96, you will marvel at sweeping views of the Great Plains and majestic buttes dotting the landscape. The small town of Colorado City anchors the southern leg of the byway. See many species of wildlife, including mule deer, elk, pronghorn and gray fox.
