It's easy to imagine what the country must have been like 100 years ago in this part of Colorado. Very few roads go through the park - just hiking trails, and there are no fences and very few structures as far as the eye can see. Just 30 miles west of Colorado Springs, Mueller State Park has 50 miles of hiking trails in 5000 acres and is one of our favorite places to go. Woodland Park is nearby for the shop-a-holics and Eleven Mile Camp is in the other direction for those that need to go even deeper into the wilderness.
Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.
