I've only ever seen the prairie chicken mating on videos. Seeing it in person was pretty awesome. Good place for bird/wildlife watching in general. Day trip at most.

We drove through the grassland from La Junta. Watching the landscape change from fairly dusty, dry and barren to this unique vegetation and bluffs was amazing. Surprising amount of wildlife. Would love to return and explore further!
