Colorado
SOUTHWEST

 Miners once searched for silver and gold here. Now the southwest mountains offer treasure of another kind - quaint old towns and lovely campgrounds in some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere. The colors in this part of the state are absolutely vibrant; there’s simply a golden quality to everything here that’s hard to explain but felt deeply. Whether you’re exploring old mines in Silverton, walking through ancient villages carved into the canyon walls of Mesa Verde, or riding a historic train pulled by a vintage steam engine through the breathtaking San Juan National Forest, you’ll have to pinch yourself to make sure you’re not dreaming.
