Driving down off the Raton Pass we could see snow covered Rockies in the distance! We have both had a love of Colorado for as long as we can remember.
Just north of Trinidad, Colorado, is The Ludlow Massacre memorial. Ludlow was once a coal mining community. In 1913 the miners launched a strike against the working conditions. In 1914, company guards and the Colorado National Guard attacked the mining camps, killing over 24 miners, their wives and children. Ludlow is now a ghost town but this memorial stands in memory of the tragedy.
Large bird soaring against the backdrop of the beautiful Colorado mountains and pines. It was really pretty.
More snow covered mountains beyond the grasslands.
We rolled through Colorado quickly driving north, but will be staying a few days on our return trip.
United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
Mile High Stadium in Denver. We’ve been to a game here before to see the Broncos play Kansas City. It was cold but great!
More on Colorado in May!
