Random Colorado Location #1 Penrose

_MG_1216w

The first of the 25 random locations I visited was Penrose, CO.  Penrose is a small town near Canon City, southwest of Colorado Springs.  There isn’t much to see in Penrose unless you like junk.  It seemed everyone had their own junkyard.  Some of them were actually organized collections of old thinks like tractors and farm implements and were interesting to look at.  It’s worth a drive through if you are in the area.

It’s home to the world’s largest rocking chair.
