Grimes Ranch

This is a large ranch with shortgrass prairie, miles of frontage on Sand Creek, and unique bluffs that rise more than 50 feet above the creek bed. As this is some of the only topography in the area, birders might want to check the high areas for Sprague’s Pipit in spring and fall migration.
