Lookout Mountain was kind of an “oops” that my cousin and I stumbled upon when I was out there in the Spring. She and I drove around only to run into signs for the lookout as well as Buffalo Bill’s gravesite. I can’t even begin to tell you how gorgeous the views were from both places. You can hit both spots – the lookout as well as the Buffalo Bill Museum in one trip. You can’t miss the signs so they’re super easy to locate. Click each photo to see it larger – these just don’t do it justice!
On your way back down the mountain, you’ll likely see people biking, hiking, and hang gliding. We also noticed 3 or 4 deer eating right on the side of the road, practically in the road, without a care in the world. I had my GoPro attached to the side of the car when we came across the deer but as my luck has it, I somehow managed to accidentally delete it from my computer. 🙁
If you happen to be in Denver and you’re looking for something to do outside of the city, surely check this area out! This drive was definitely one of the highlights of my trip!
