Bison And More Just Outside Of Denver At The Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge

There's a treasure to be found just Northeast of Denver called the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.  I recently did the 9 mile self guided driving tour twice in one week.  There are walking trails to explore as well, but I haven't done any of those yet.  There's something special about watching wildlife roaming free with views of the Rocky Mountains and the city skyline as a backdrop.  And on top of that the entire experience is free!

The edge of the refuge is less than a mile from my home but I had to drive over 8 miles to get to the entrance - that gives you an idea of just how big this place is.  They have a visitor center and hold events and special programs during the year.  This wonderful place is in Commerce City, right by Dick's Sporting Goods Park just a short drive from Denver.

Check out these pictures I was able to get without ever leaving my car!  If you haven't already visited, I highly recommend carving out a few hours time to go exploring.
