Located adjacent to Pike National Forest, this town serves as a gateway to the rolling ponderosa pine forests surrounding Pikes Peak, which dominates the southern skyline. This is the population center of Teller County, with all the amenities. Feeders in town can attract doves, finches, nuthatches, and occasionally Band-tailed Pigeons in summer. Deer, elk and the handsome Abert’s Squirrel inhabit the area as well.
