Forest Service offering tours of southeast CO Canyonlands

LA JUNTA, Colo. - The U.S. Forest Service will offer guided tours into Picket Wire Canyonlands south of La Junta on the Comanche National Grassland. Fall tours begin the first Saturday of September and run through October 22, 2011. These primitive canyons are home to the largest dinosaur track site in North America.

Guided auto tours are the easiest way to visit Picket Wire Canyonlands and learn about its rich, colorful past. During the tour, knowledgeable guides show visitors difficult to find dinosaur tracks and point out the interesting prehistoric, historic and natural features of the canyons.

All day tours (8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) are offered on Saturdays in May, June, September and October for a small fee. Due to rough roads, visitors will need their own four-wheel drive vehicle.
