4th of July in Keystone

Fireworks + SCMRCome to Keystone and celebrate Independence Day while taking in some of our nation’s most beautiful sites. Surely when Ms. Bates wrote “purple mountain majesties” in 1913 she was referencing our very own majestic Rockies. Between the views and the weather, Keystone is the place to be in July.
