One Of Colorado’s Most Incredible Wildlife Spectacles Takes Place In This Unassuming Small Town

If you enjoy seeing wildlife in its natural habitat, Colorado is heaven on earth. Take any hiking trail, visit any city park, or stop by any beautiful lake, and you’re likely to see a range of animals from elk to chipmunks to birds of prey. Every year, one little town is home to the most incredible migration you’ve ever seen, and you’re going to want to check it out in person.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
