If you’ve been searching for a secluded place with unreal scenery, then look no further--that perfect place is here, in the Rio Grande National Forest. Two of Colorado’s most scenic mountain ranges can be found within it’s boundaries. The Sange de Cristos and the San Juan Mountains are well-known for their lofty mountain peaks, gushing rivers, and overall postcard perfect scenery. It’s a haven for serious outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers of all kinds. Getting outside and diving deep into this Rocky Mountain paradise is definitely recommended, but the views that you can snag from the seat of your car are pretty darn impressive, too. And the best part? This region of Colorado isn’t all that crowded, making it a welcome relief from some of the more populated recreation areas. So what are you waiting for?! Come on out and discover why they call it “Colorful Colorado!”
