The South Park pronghorn herd (PH-30) has the distinction as being the highest elevation herd within the state of Colorado. This herd is likely at the extent of the pronghorn's habitat range, occupying a high elevation (9,000-10,000 feet) grassland steppe ecosystem. It is a relatively small herd that has maintained around 1,000 animals in recent years, but has seen numbers as low as 300 in the early 1970s. This herd experiences periodic low recruitment rates and it is not uncommon to see pre-hunt fawn:doe ratios fall below 20: 100. Game damage issues in the past kept harvest high and the overall population well below 1,000 in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Extended periods of drought and severe winters appear to be limiting factors for this herd more

The Como Cemetery was established by the Town of Como in 1887, when a previous burial ground was closed due to its location just above a spring that provided water for some residents, leading to fears it was a possible source of water contamination. The Town Board enacted an ordinance requiring all burials in the old cemetery be removed to the new one. Como Cemetery provided funerary services for residents of Como, surrounding small settlements, and the broader rural ranching and mining area. The first Cemetery was located in the proximity behind the old schoolhouse. Como Cemetery has 461 burial sites, with one-third of these being unknown. The Cemetery is 4.5 acres and is maintained by Park County.

It served as the site for the mass funeral and

What’s the difference between a good fisherman and a bad one?

 

 

Well, the answer might not be that easy, but there is one thing that tops the list…just like they say in REAL ESTATE, it all starts with location, location, location. Lucky for you, we have done the research, explored and tested the waters, and while we may not be revealing all the secret spots, we’ll show you where to start.

 

Lakes and Reservoirs – There are several lakes and reservoirs in Park County, Colorado that offer fishing year-round. Antero Reservoir, Elevenmile Canyon Reservoir, Spinney Mountain Reservoir, Jefferson Lake, and Lake George all have great fishing.

One thing is for certain. Moose aren't the most eloquent creatures, but they sure are cool. Standing over six feet tall and weighing between 600 and 1,600 pounds, moose are a common sight within Rocky Mountain National Park and a visitor favorite.

But until the late 1970s it was rare to catch a glimpse of moose in Colorado, even though there are records of moose sightings as far back as the 1850s, according to an Aspen Daily News article. In 1978, Colorado Parks and Wildlife first introduced 12 moose from Utah to the area west of the Never Summer Mountains near the town of Walden. In 1979, another 12 from Wyoming were released in the same region in the Illinois River drainage. This early population thrived and some moved into the Laramie River

What do you get when you combine the waters of a famous Colorado fishing river with a tailwater and 3.8 miles of water above another reservoir? You get a great place for fish to live and breed. This river also turns out to be a Gold Medal water with the nickname of the "Dream Stream". Where are we describing? It's the section of the South Platte River between Spinney and Elevenmile Reservoirs in South Park, also known as Spinney Mountain State Wildlife Area. In 2010, the State Wildlife Area (SWA) was renamed Charlie Meyers SWA, in honor of the well-known deceased Denver Post Outdoor writer.

This portion of the South Platte starts below Spinney Reservoir and meanders through grasslands for about 3.8 miles before entering Elevenmile Reservoir. The

As Fall draws near, we have the opportunity to witness the spectacular event of Full Rut. If you are love watching Elk and capturing amazing photos and videos of these majestic creatures, now is the time.  Please respect the wildlife and do not feed them or approach them.

 

The meadows in Michigan Hill and Jefferson Heights are filled with large herds right now. Take a drive through these neighborhoods around dusk and bring your camera. If you do not see the Elk, just turn off your car and listen. Their Bugling will lead you straight to the herd.
