Skyline Drive in Caņon City! - (A Short & Scenic Drive in Fremont County) - May 2005
Skyline Drive Just west of Caņon City on Highway 50, is a very worthwhile attraction called Skyline Drive, a road with lots of scenic views and history behind it.

Now just for the record, I actually biked up there (starting at the Homestead Restauarant parking lot in Florence), but it's a one-way, single-laned road that has some steep drops on both sides. Uh, I wouldn't do this drive when there's snow, sleet, ice, etc. <:-O In the bottom photo, there was another biker ahead of me!

Now this is really interesting!
There are actually some dinosaur tracks that size of a medium pizza up on the walls. I took photos of the signs for your enjoyment.

TOP: The view looking towards Highway 50 going out west, towards the Royal Gorge, Texas Creek and Cotopaxi.
BOTTOM: Looking straight out to the right. With the desertish look and small circular pinions, the view reminds me of New Mexico.
Cactus Oooooooooooooooooooooooh!
Just look at that cactus!
