        The Authentic Old West is a beautiful landscape marked by prairies, volcanoes, pioneer homesteads, and villages straight out of a Western movie set. The landscape has changed little since settlers, miners, and railroad workers progressed along the Santa Fe Trail.

          Head east, about 18 miles or so, then turn left, to the hill town of Roussillon, a rose colored beauty spot framed by red-ocher cliffs. Prepare for the dramatic drive, a 65-mile version of a carnival ride.

          Here you can see people selling jars of regional olives, olive oil, and tapenades. The tourist destination is a wonderful location to have a long, relaxing, and peaceful drive with your better half.
