Rocky Mountain Arsenal Refuge

I saw this fellow at the open space next to my house on a walk last week. The Arsenal Refuge is an old federal site that was used for the army, chemicals of war and all kinds of nasty things in the past. It has been turned into a wildlife refuge and sits in east Denver next to the airport. It has herds of buffalo, deer, gazelle, eagles, snakes and a ridiculous amount of prarie dogs. It’s far too hot on the prarie during the day for me. But when I walk at the edge of it near sunset it is so beautiful in a lonely, barren, majestic way. It’s just me and the warm wind, and my thoughts and my podcasts.

  1. How wonderful. What a beautiful buffalo and how fortunate you were to have seen him. 🙂 Love the photo with the tiny white flowers and the large contrasting dark buffalo, with the sunset behind him.
