The remnants of Dinosaurs can be viewed in many parts of the state. Two places to see them are Dinosaur National Monument near Creede and Red Canyon Park near Canon City. The faboulus exhibit is at the Denver Museum of Natural History.
Native Americans left their 2,000 year old trace in the state's southwest corner. The mysterious and controversial possible cannibals left their mesa top and cliff dwellings behind an mysteriously dissapeared. Their ancient dwellings can be seen at Mesa Verde.
Spanish Conquistadors searching for Cibola gold named the state for the red adobe mud found along the Rio Grande riverbanks in the 1600's. The southern plains natives acquired of few caballos and life along what early 19th Century explorer Long called the "Great American Desert" changed forever!
