Donath Lake

This small lake can be scanned from one safe pullout on the east side of the road. The water here can attract Western Grebes, ducks, and sometimes gulls, mostly between late fall and spring when the water is not completely frozen. One of the most unexpected birds ever to be found in Colorado, a Kelp Gull from South America, was once spotted here.
