Alpine Triangle

Description:

The Bureau of Land Management cares for 600,000 acres of public land in the upper Gunnison River and San Juan Basins in southwest Colorado. Collaborating with the gateway communities of Lake City, Silverton, and Ouray, plus a number of public and private partners, we guide the protection, management and sustainable use of a wide variety of resources. Ecosystems within the recreation area range from dry sagebrush steppes at 7,000 ft.; to forests of aspen, ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, lodgepole pine, Engleman spruce, and subalpine fir; to alpine tundra meadows that reach to over 14,000 ft.

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
November's Animal
Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
