Crossing the Colorado Prairie – Lamar, Cheyenne Wells, Kit Carson, Ordway, Holly

US 50 is definitely the route to use crossing eastern Colorado in this part of the state. It runs from Holly though Lamar and Las Animas to La Junta. Then, depending on your destination, you can head northwest to Pueblo or southwest to Trinidad. If you're heading more toward Denver, take US 287 north toward Limon.
