Empire

The little town of Empire sits right at the junction of US 40 and I-70, and while not having quite the suite of amenities as Georgetown, it does offer a good stopover for anyone looking to re-stock. Bird-wise, look for American Dipper along the creek in town, and (in winter), Rosy-finches, and Evening Grosbeaks at feeders. This area can also be favorable to viewing bighorn sheep.
