There’s a new museum filled with saddles on Colorado’s plains. It’s in Simla, about two hours east of Denver. Don Bailey tells Ryan Warner he's collected more than 300 saddles, and says some are works of art. Bailey's Saddleland Museum is featured on a self-guided tour of Eastern Colorado attractions called "Our Journey." For more information on the tour click here.

Another tour attraction is the World's Wonderview Tower in the small town of Genoa, Colorado. CPR's Megan Verlee visited the tower in the summer of 2009. You can hear her story here.
