Located along, you guessed it — the Western Vistas — this Historic Byway is a rough and rugged 102-mile stretch that passes through gorgeous limestone and chalk formations, colorful native grassland, and unique wildlife that you don’t see everyday (including bison). If you want to get out and stretch your legs, you are in luck as…

…the Western Vistas Historic Byway is situated along the El Quartelejo Museum (a museum and ruins site that houses early pioneer and Native American artifacts), Fort Wallace Museum (which is dedicated to the history of the area as well as the men of the 5th, 7th and 10th Cavalries), Buffalo Bill Cultural Center (any guesses as to the theme of this museum?), and many other historic and natural treasures.
