SeeTheSouthwest.com is a website that celebrates the beauty, majesty and wonder of the American Southwest and outdoor adventure travel. Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico have been touched by magic — whether visitors to the Southwest love arid terrain, tall mountains, pueblo ruins or lakes and streams — these states have dozens of fantastic locations to get outdoors and explore. It seems impossible that four states can have so many breathtaking vistas, but it is true. See The Southwest explores these natural wonders and offers helpful hints on things to do, places to stay, where to get great food, as well as great stories about the history and heritage of the Southwest. Visitors can now book a tour directly through SeeTheSouthwest.com.
For active visitors who like to keep busy on vacation, SeeTheSouthwest.com covers many of the major events in all four states — events like Baseball Spring Training in Arizona, the Running of the Santas event in Utah, and haunted hotels and locations across all four states that are fun to visit during the month of October. Outdoor explorers will value the section on adventures and must-see places, both on and off-road.
SeeTheSouthwest.com has another purpose as well — it was designed to share the history and heritage of the region. By way of example, one of the stories on SeeTheSouthwest.com is about Rupe and Prunes. Rupe Sherwood, a tough, independent man, spent his entire adult life looking for and mining the precious metals (mostly gold and silver) of Colorado near the Fairplay-Alma area. Rupe didn’t care to work the hardrock mines. Instead he prefer to pan for gold. Rupe’s life would have been a lonely one, since he spent much of his time in solitude in the wilderness. Luckily, Rupe wasn’t alone. He had the best friend a man could have — his faithful burro, Prunes. Visit the website to learn what makes Rupe and Prunes so famous ... famous enough that a monument still stands today in Fairplay, Colorado commemorating the pair.
A new feature on SeeTheSouthwest.com will allow visitors to book a tour or make a lodging reservation on the spot. Click on the Book a Tour button at the top right-hand side of the site, or follow the embedded links in many of the stories to find the perfect adventure or lodging.
See The Southwest is a labor of love for one native of the Southwest, and one writer who just had to get the stories out of her head. Alex Highland has spent his entire life in the Southwest and has traveled to dozens of locations in the Four Corners states. Jen Wolfe began travelling to the West and Southwest at a young age with her family. Vacations were always spent camping, hiking and enjoying natural wonders. Both of these individual are so passionate about the southwest that this website was born. Between the two of them, they have so many stories and sites to share that they just couldn’t keep the news bottled up inside.
