Probably the best "landscape" shot I got while in Trinidad, Colorado. Mom and I walked up to the top of Simson's Rest (the 400 ft. cliff) and I snapped some photos looking over the town. The skies soon clouded up, and we headed back down when it began to sprinkle :phew:

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Hate this town. Sure it is pretty sometimes and I love the image, but the town and people who live in it. Oh man, I am glad I do not live there, have some stories

To sum it all up, that town is the virtual ghetto of the state of Colorado. Absolutely anything that is considered ghetto is in that town. The people who live there are terrible. Sure I will admit it is a nice place to visit, but so long the visit is not that long. Since the location is somewhat remote, you have young kids who want to be in gangs who will do absolutely anything to gain their attention. You get a lot of pointless killings because of that and how people want to simply act tough, so they go out and shoot or stab someone. Not to mention the devil worshipers in that town, there are some stories there that stand out in my mind. If you talk to the majority of locals, you will find that there is nothing to do in that town and that they basically all want to leave.

Dont see how anyone could love it. Sure the area has lovely scenery, but the people, oh the people. Sure there are nice ones and such, but the vast majority suck, I mean the spray paint gives you an idea. All the drug use and everything. All the cyclists that go through the town on the highway to see the pretty scenery who end up trashing the roads. Then all the thieves who steal tourists items. Best idea is to just leave that place and dont come back. At most, nice place to visit, just dont stay long. Id rather spend time up at Monument Lake.

Honestly if you dont come 2 trinidad you would be doing all of us a favour because the last thing we need is another judgmental person like you.Any where you go it will have robberies and drug use so i don't really see your point. Sad Sad Sad

Ill say Im done talking about this town. Hate the town, dont bother me anymore about that bloody town or harass me about it. The only Trinidad I want to hear about is the country. Thats the only Trinidad Im fine with. Dont bring up the town again or harass me on it please.
