View From Our Neighborhood: Autumn in the Colorado Rockies

If you have never seen a buffalo up close, come to Colorado. There is a wonderful viewing area just west of Denver and about 25 minutes by car from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law where you can often see an impressive heard of the animals.

The heard is located adjacent to Interstate 70 near the Genesee Park exit (number 254) as one heads into the Colorado Rockies. Of course, there are lots of other great scenes as well in autumn and in all seasons in America's Centennial State (so named for entering the U.S. in 1876).

Visitors sometimes think that the buffalo continue to roam freely around the state, but those days are now gone. However, you can see big horn sheep, elk, and deer, particularly in the state's mountain areas.
