Redstone, Colorado is gorgeous. The mountains are huge, the waterfalls are plentiful, and there are pine trees galore.
There are also coke ovens from a mining era long past. Aren’t they cool? According to redstonecolorado.com, sixty-two of these ovens have been partially rebuilt. In the early nineteen-hundreds, the ovens were used to burn impurities from mined coal to make the coking cole that was used in the Pueblo steel mill.
While in Redstone, we also took a walk through the town. The walking trail that leads from the parking area to the park isn’t long, but the scenery is great, and it’s a good way to stretch your legs.
