Weird Colorado: Your Travel Guide to Colorado’s Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets by Charmaine Ortega Getz

Summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still time for a vacation. Weird Colorado provides ample suggestions on where to explore. Have you heard the story of Mike the Headless Chicken? Head over to Fruita. Want to learn more about the vampire that lives in a cemetery? Make Lafayette is your destination. If you’re an armchair traveler, you’ll appreciate the history and photos contained in this book. For instance, learn about the gangs of outlaws of the 1860s and where they may have stashed their loot. Or simply immerse yourself in tales of unearthly creatures and the towns they inhabited.
