Reservoirs along CO 149

0

Surrounded by miles of mountainous terrain with very little standing water, these small and rather nondescript ponds can attract many waterbirds in spring and fall, including various ducks, Western and Eared Grebes, Bald Eagles, and the occasional gull. Mountain Bluebirds breed in the nearby meadows, which provide grazing areas for elk, deer, and occasionally moose.
