The full panorama of the rugged north–south Sangres is best viewed coming into Westcliffe on Hwy 96, where you'll see peak after jagged peak rising up dramatically from the valley floor. The town itself is a down-to-earth ranching community; outside of the bluegrass festival and rodeo in July, it's mainly of interest to travelers as the staging ground for excursions into the eastern Sangre de Cristo wilderness.
