Panorama of the Lariat Trail - Lookout Mountain Road, Colorado - Postcard, c. 1940


(5 1/2 x 3 1/2 In) This is an original vintage Sanborn Souvenir Co. linen postcard from the 1940s. It shows a panoramic view of the Lariat Trail, Lookout Mountain Road, Denver Mountain Parks, Colorado.

"THE LARIAT TRAIL, as the road that ascends Lookout Mountain is called, is a splendid mountain boulevard that climbs 2,000 feet above its starting point in Golden in its six mile climb to the top of Lookout Mountain. It winds its way around and over the hills like the loops of a far flung Lariat, making the aptness of its title beautifully apparent to those who gaze back.", reads the description printed on the back. 

The postcard is unused and is in VERY GOOD condition, light wear at the edges.
