*Plan* – Southwest Colorado New Web Site

Explore Southwest Colorado Heritage

Follow in the Trail of the Ancients, explore the San Juan Skyway or the “Shady” side of Southwest Colorado. Start planning  your trip on a new web site, http://www.swcoloradoheritage.com covering  the Southmesa-verde1west Colorado Travel Region.

What a rich heritage you’ll find throughout the region, from the Ancient Puebloan People to Chief Ouray and the Utes; early Europeans coming for fur trapping to railroaders and miners with gold fever. Ride a stagecoach down Mancos Canyon or buy a custom made Western hat. The region’s scenery surpasses expectations and you’ll find recreational opportunities around every corner.

Visitors to the web site find a number of suggested trips, an electronic trip planner to build your own personalized itinerary, lots of information and links for attractions, destinations, events and accommodations. The region includes:cortez-dancer
