The Box Recreation Area

Description:

The Box Recreation Area contains 320 acres of BLM land, primarily used for technical rock climbing and bouldering. The area is highly scenic and provides recreation opportunities throughout the year. The five cliffs on either side of this box canyon provide popular rock climbing for even highly-skilled technical climbers. With challenges like the Waterfall Wall, Corner Block and the Fillet a Papillon Wall, the piton-packing set should be drooling. Climbing, hiking.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
