Haven't hiked in the SW part of Colorado aside from a short walk at Canyon of the Ancients, so unfortunately I can't provide any first-hand recommendations.

Redcloud Peak looks very colorful and isn't nearly as popular as 14ers further north in the state. Sunshine Peak, the lowest 14er that offers great views of Redcloud, can be done on the same trip. That's probably the first place I'd head if I were in that area (edit: maybe not the absolute first place since I'd probably want to get acclimatized first.)

14ers.com has good info on 14ers and 13ers in Colorado and there's also a 14ers sub on Reddit where you might be able to get some helpful suggestions from locals and people who hike there regularly.
