Here are a few spots that are well worth a pull-over whether you’re detouring from a cross-country road trip along I-70, taking the scenic route to (or from) Denver via high-altitude Leadville, or dipping into nooks and crannies along state highways and country roads on an extended exploration of western Colorado.
