Red Rocks Park and Ampitheatre / Morrison, Colorado
Before actually entering the famed concert venue, we took a leisurely 1.5 mile hike around the grounds. Located at the intersection of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains, it has a unique mix of flora and fauna. The vegetation is a mixture of grasses, wildflowers, scrubby bushes and a few larger trees. There are also a fair amount of yucca and prickly pear tucked amongst the grasses.
