The Sierra Blanca Massif is a part of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and all of it is a big segment of Colorado's Southern Rocky Mountains. But the Sierra Blanca is probably the most spectacular region of the Southern Rockies - insiders would even say of the entire Rocky Mountains between Mexico and Canada. Four peaks higher than 14,000 feet, high alpine lakes, dramatic valleys and 2000ft tall, vertical granite faces - the Sierra Blanca in South Central Colorado feels like its own world. Locals really love the unusual cloud formations that are constantly forming over the enormous cluster of tall peaks. And nothing is more special than experiencing the stunning sunrises and sunset, especially during the winter months, when the rays of the sun hit the mountains just perfectly and illuminate only parts of the range. And the clouds - glowing like liquid iron in the sky - were just the icing on the cake.
