Prairie lands dust the landscape with soft greenery along Sangre de Cristo Mountains Scenic Drive (SR 69). A herd of blue-hued mountains in the Sangre de Cristo range clusters between the earth and sky in the near distance. Cattle ranches and red barns dot the high plains scenery. Pine trees are scattered throughout the byway, often foresting the reddish hills.
