Ute Valley Park

0

The craggy bluffs of Ute Valley Park isolate this area from surrounding urban sprawl. The park contains good foothills scrub habitat, and breeding birds such as Plumbeous Vireo, Lazuli Bunting, Green-tailed Towhee and others are well represented. Deer, rock squirrels, black bear and rattlesnakes also live in the park, although you will need luck to run into the latter two.
