There are many of us Coloradans who believe we have “seen it all and done it all” when it comes to the beauty of our beloved state. But have you? Have you really? Let’s take a look at some of the state’s best-kept secrets and you can let us know if you really have been there, done that!

Last Dollar Road

Dreaming of wide open spaces and no time schedule…

A post shared by Cassandra Louise (@sparrow_grove) on

This amazing place is located between Ridgway and Telluride and has to be one of the most scenic and beautiful stretches of road anywhere. And if you go in the fall, when the colors are changing, the sheer beauty could change you.

Located in Marble, Co., this amazing place sits quietly, waiting for you to discover its beauty. The lake itself covers five acres and has an unknown depth. Ooh, kinda cool, not knowing how deep it is.

Another amazing place and it’s here on the Western Slope. There is so much to see and do here, and if you look around long enough, you are bound to catch something with your eye you have never seen before, or may never see again.

Conundrum Hot Springs

Soaking in the hot springs at 11,200'. Life is grand. #coloradolivin #coloradogram #coloradotography #conundrumhotsprings

It’s a pretty decent hike into this area, but as you can see the payoff is amazing. Plan on spending the day to get here and enjoy it, and come prepared. Water is essential on this hike.

Crystal Mill

The scenery around this place is amazing, not to mention where that mill sits. At one time an actual working mill, it has sat there since 1892 and is now a revered and loved site. Not a secret for long.

There are plenty more of these secret places, maybe we will have to come up with a few more, or better yet, let us know your favorite secret places.
