Photos of Westcliffe & Silver Cliff - Custer County, Colorado

Nice Mountain Living
I spent three days in Westcliffe and Silver Cliff, two little towns in the heart of Custer County. Below are my twelve best photos taken with my cell phone. As you can see, the mountain scenery is pretty amazing, with the Sangre de Cristo Mountains towering to the west.

It seems like no matter where you are, all you need to do is face west to see a gorgeous mountain scene.

A friend of a friend is building a million-dollar home on the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains near Horn Creek Conference Center. This will be one of his views.
Conquistador Pizza
I highly recommend the Conquistador Pizza at Tony's Mountain Pizza in Silver Cliff. It comes with green chile, chorizo, red onions, cheddar cheese, and sour cream drizzle. It was so good!

This mountain shot was taken on the dirt road that heads toward Hermit Basin.

More Colorado mountain scenery on a quiet dirt road. Ahhhh. :)
Clouds and Mountains
My friend Bill and I watched the sunset from The Bluff in Westcliffe. The sunset's colors were a dud, but it's always nice to be out there.
