"Sangre De Cristo Mountain Range" Top 5 Page for this destination Colorado Things to Do Tip by Astrobuck

Colorado Things to Do: 315 reviews and 462 photos


This is an area famous for ice climbing, rock climbing, hiking, and camping. There are also books written about hidden treasure in caves and the like. Sangre de Cristo means "Blood of Christ" in Spanish. It is possible they are named that because the Spanish saw the mountains had a reddish color to them, almost like blood. If you look closely at this part of the range in the picture, you will see a slight reddish tint on one of the mountains.
