The Paint Mines

We visited the Paint Mines Interpretive Park near Calhan, Colorado last week. What a cool spot! They're located about 30 miles east of Colorado Springs. The indians used to come here to dig for paint. The colors are just amazing, and the rocks even feel like paint dust. There are several trails that go down among the hoodoos and colors. Here are several pictures that show just a little bit of the beauty of this cool spot.
