Picket Wire guided tours

The U.S. Forest Service will offer guided auto tours of Picket Wire Canyonlands south of La Junta on the Comanche National Grassland.

These primitive canyons are home to the largest dinosaur track site in North America and many historic and archaeological features.

Fall tours are scheduled every Saturday beginning this weekend through Oct. 20. Tours run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Due to rough roads, visitors will need their own four-wheel drive vehicle and any supplies such as water and food.

For more information or to make reservations, call 719-384-2181 or visit the USFS website.
