Goemmer Butte is located south of La Veta, CO. While driving hwy 12, I saw a sign for Indian Creek trailhead and it was a spur of the moment "let's check it out" but after a few miles on the county road, we came to a road closed sign...so much for finding that trail. But had several opportunities to stop along the road on the way back to the hwy for some landscape photography.
Goemmer Butte is in the valley between the West Spanish Peak (seen in the background) and the Sangre de Cristos. All of the buttes in Spanish Peaks Country are volcanic plugs, formed when magma flowed up a vent towards the surface but solidified in the form of a plug.
