This is yet another place to stop, and enjoy the magnificent views/vistas/mountains one finds all throughout Colorado. Nature certainly put some overtime into this state.

Easy to get to, take a few minutes to soak in the beauty of the Collegiate Peaks. Some of Colorado ' s highest peaks are on the section of the Sawatch Range. I wish I could see the peaks in all four seasons.

Passed by this scenic lookout on the way from Colorado Springs to Buena Vista, Not bad a view on a clear day. Nice vista view of the town from high ground.

Fall colors and Sunrise made this spectacular. Stopped about ten times along Route 24 to enjoy the view even though I'd been thru here a dozen times. The fog hanging on Mt Princeton was cool.
