If you're passing by the area, be sure to visit here. There is a 7 dollar fee. Most people do not pay it. But I know you're a good American citizen (or honorable global traveler) and will support the site.
What a place to have a picnic. If you're on the road and want a shady spot with tables to eat your Pb&J, stop here.
This is probably the only place you're going to get to have a full, Panaramic view of the Collegiate Peaks. Yep, Yale, Princeton, Columbia. Seriously, guys. You're in such an amazing place and you just had to name them after Ivy League schools, didn't ya?
But enough of the rant. I got the best shots of the mountains from here.
