Mountain Rails Live, Fir Mountain, CO
This amphitheater is beyond green. For the sixth season, Mountain Rails Live offers a summer concert series staged in a solar-powered venue at the top of LaVeta Pass 9,400 feet up in the Southern Rockies. Accessible only aboard the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad, which leaves from Alamosa, two and a half hours south of Colorado Springs, the music features the likes of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Trout Fishing in America and Juice Newton. After the show, everybody winds up in the club car for adult beverages and the scenic ride home. Through Sept. 14.
