Stonewall is Near the Dakota Sandstone Formation


Stonewall, another town on the highway, is near a rock wall that rises 250 feet above town which is part of the Dakota Sandstone formation. In the 1880s, Stonewall was the site of a stand-off between settlers and the government over the Maxwell Land Grand. Today, this is a peaceful, pristine area where the spring waters are said to be enchanted. The Scenic Highway of Legends (Highway 12) was designated as a Colorado State Byway in 1987 and a National Byway in 1988. Like its name, the highway passes through numerous towns which played a part in forming Colorado's fascinating historical legacy. Monument Lake is nestled among the pines and high altitude lakes. A legend here tells of two Indian chiefs who, in search of water for their thirsty tribes, met and embraced in peace, crying for the lack of water. A lake formed at their feet and a volcano erupted, enclosing the two chiefs in rock in the center of the lake. Today both this lake and nearby North Lake offer fishing and other year round outdoor activities.
