Heritage Ranch - I've spent time in all of those areas! Lived there for a year when I was 18.
Later met my wife whose family is from there. The maternal side lived in Canon City, her paternal side is from a long line in Ordway going back to one of the four original settlers emoticon
Every time we go visit her relatives out there we make stops at most of those places.

(Ordway is east, out in the plains)

I THINK I have been to Red Rocks Ampitheater. It was on a trip to Denver to see my [sign in to see URL] and her brother were with us that [sign in to see URL] that is where I am thinking. An awesome place regardless of where it [sign in to see URL] stand at the top and the person on the 'stage' could almost whisper and you could hear them. And the area surrounding was gorgeous.

Fenyx would be able to tell me if that is the place we went to, I'm sure.

Another neat place near Denver is Glenwood [sign in to see URL] natural hot spring swimming pool. We went there one July, and had to get out of the pool for a freak snow [sign in to see URL] I do mean [sign in to see URL] with thunder and lightning.

    I live in Southern Idaho (US) and can drive from sagebrush flats to black volcanic moonscape to alpine meadows all within one hour.
  My favorite, most powerful place is called The Silent City of Rocks.
  Huge granite monoliths so filled with quartze crystals they pulse if you are open to them.
  Rock climbers from all over the world come here.
  Reserve staff maintain and deal with the rare knuckleheads.
  Memorial Day weekend the valley is basically annexed by campers from Utah. Other than that, you can find peace and quiet.

Wow, [sign in to see URL] will have to try to stop there one of these years.
My Parents live in Payette, ID and we usually come up from New Mexico and catch I15 to I84 then cut across I86, never even knew that was there! emoticon

Re: What are some points of interest in your area?


  Hi Queenyforever,
  
   The open greasewood country just south of the I-86 I-84 junction that everyone hurries to get through is just east of City of Rocks.
 I would recommend doing a site search and finding the best way in for you.
  
  I have a secret place very close to City of Rocks where I used to go to sit and think when I was younger.
 One time, too many years ago, I was sitting there drumming softly with my eyes closed and my spirit open. I stopped drumming a bit and looked up to see thirteen mule deer does standing in a half circle in front watching me.
  I said "Hello sisters". The lead doe stomped her front foot and they slowly walked away in single file.
  Thirteen pretty ladies, one for each full moon. I thanked them.

  Southern Idaho is pretty much a cultural desert, and not open to "alternative" thinking, so I don't think any pagan groups have really looked into the area. Pity.

  Next time you pass through, look over to the south when you pass the Heyburn exit on I-84 and think good thoughts. I'm sure I'll feel them. A hawk can reach from there to my house in two wing beats.

  Take care.
