While traveling through the San Luis Valley, if you have a little time on your hands stop by the Monte Vista Historical Society. It is a little building chock full of memorabilia on the founding of Henry, Colorado becoming Monte Vista, Colorado. You can purchase a deck of playing cards with lots of historical tidbits as a souvenir.
