The Sangre De Cristo Mountains scenery is always beautiful. That right there is a lot of exciting things already but it goes on, the Sangre De Cristo Mountains has it all. Going for a horse ride at nearby Los Pinos Equestrian Center is always a fun thing to do, and why not take a little trip to Ricardo Creek since you're here. The Rudolph Mountain Trail is a wonderful hiking trail near Marion Lake. There's so much to do here at Marion Lake that you need to
camp here for a while, Lake Isabel - Spruce Group is a fine location for that. This lake is so wonderful. After a long day outdoors Super 8 Florence Canon City A is a nice place to spend a night or two.
Fun? I must have the wrong place. Getting to Marion Lake is fun as well as the hiking sites along the way (Marion Mine, and others) but I wouldn't say this is a tourist stop. OK place to grab a few fish, but stay well-hidden. It is a level area and a quick walk can be made to Greenhorn Mountain Road.
