Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge,
a 15,988 acre National Refuge, is about 8 mile northeast of downtown Denver, Colorado. While we were there, we saw this huge buffalo. He was on the side of the road, about 8 feet from our car.
He came there to drink from a puddle. As we watched him, he crossed in front of us and rolled in the dirt in another field.
There are may buffalo in the refuge. We took this photo on a previous visit.
The deer are also plentiful. This small one watches us watch her.
Part of the refuge has wetlands. We previously photographed these birds swimming.
We like the water and the trees.
Of course, no refuge would be complete without several prairie dogs.
They really are cute. The Visitor Center is very helpful.
We liked this buffalo.
The Track It sign is very informative.
