Located northwest of Denver, Colorado, the Rocky Flats Wildlife National Refuge was once the site of an underground nuclear testing facility. The area was converted into a wildlife refuge after the closing of the facility. Our camera frames a ranch house and historic Lindsey barn beside a pond with a backdrop of wind turbines and the Flatirons. The riparian area along Rock Creek provides critical habitat for many species, including mule deer and a resident elk herd. This camera was retired several years ago after heavy rains and local flooding blew the dam out and drained the pond, the only permanent water feature on the property.
