--Takes up the majority of the area, tall grasses with interspersed
trees and large sun bleached boulders, this is where the buffalo roam
especially up north toward the foothills where water is more plentiful;
coyotes, prairie dogs, badgers, wolverines, mule deer, elk and the
swift pronghorn antelope also inhabit this area. Coachwhip snakes also
hang around to prey on gophers, black racers, rat snakes and rattlers
can also be found here so watch your step. Birds include the burrowing
owl, great horned owl, bald and golden eagles, falcons, crows, prairie
chickens, sage grouse, Canadian geese (seasonal), and numerous
song birds such as blue birds, black birds, chickadees, sparrows and
2. Buffalo Creek
--The crick the town is named after is a branch of the Crow Creek
which is a part of the South Platte River and cuts through the cliffs
to the south and runs along the base of the foothills and floods the
plains during the spring runoff. The waters are inhabited by trout,
bass, catfish, otters and unfortunately beavers, muskrat, snapping
turtles and cotton mouth snakes. However when flooding occurs it
cuts off all access by the indians to the town, unless they are stuck
in town unable to return home for a few months.
--The forest takes up the south eastern portion of the region,
flourishing around the rich flood plains of the Buffalo Creek and
surrounds the town, most of the trees are conifers. This is where the
largest population of whitetail deer can be found, but one may
occasionally run upon a bobcat, black bear, moose as well as the rare
grizzly. Raccoons, ground squirrels, chipmunks, cottontail, porcupine,
skunks, tree squirrels, weasels and black footed ferrets live here. For
the avid trapper it may be worthy to note that mink and marten are
--A collection of run off and flood water from the foothills and creek
formed this lovely lake where catfish are plentiful but preyed upon by
whooping and sandhill cranes and snapping turtles.
--The gently rolling foothills of the towering Rockies to the east of
the town cast the land in shadow in the mornings until the sun peeks
over them. They are capped in snow from November to May when it
melts and floods the creek, nourishing the plains. Coyotes, red fox,
big horn sheep, lynx and a rare mountain lion are common to the area.
--A complicated system of cliffs, caves, caverns and formations to the
south of the town is the perfect place for outlaws to hide out, or
rattlers, mountain lions and goats.
7. The Indian Village
--This is where the area's mixed tribe of natives resides, they are
mostly Sioux forcefully relocated by the US army stationed at Fort
Collins, but they are usually peaceful.
8. The town of Buffalo Creek Bay
--Founded in 1856 by a group of drifters, this town is now prospering
despite most of the towns in the area profiting from the gold rush, this
post gold rush town is still kicking when most buckled under and
disappeared when the veins ran dry in the early 60's. There are now
over thirty established buildings as the town continues to grow day by
day after a split from the Denver Pacific brought more commerce to
the area. The Denver Pacific can take residents of Buffalo Creek Bay
to Denver to the south, and when the line is complete in June of 1870
it will also connect Buffalo Creek to Cheyenne, Wyoming and the rest
of the country as it hooks up with the great Union Pacific Rail Road.
