In operation since 1986, the Rocky Mountain Wildlife Park is a privately owned facility that strives "to educate people about the wildlife in this area and to give people the opportunity to see such wildlife up close in what would be their natural habitats." These animals include elk, bears, mules, deer, cougars, wolves, bobcats, porcupines, coyotes, and mountain lions. The Wildlife Museum features life-size mounted animals.
The Chimney Rock National Monument is a part of the San Juan National Forest in Colorado. This designated U.S. National Monument also consists of an archaeological site, with the rocks being over 535 million years old. Believed to have been the hub of the ancient Pueblo civilization, the site features a number of ancient constructions which can be visited on day walks. The rock rises to a height of 315 feet (96 meters), thus offering beautiful panoramic views of the forests around, ideal for avid hikers and climbers.
A 4,100-acre San Juan National Forest Archaeological Area and National Historic Site, located between Durango and Pagosa Springs, Chimney Rock was home to the ancestors of the modern Pueblo Indians 1,000 years ago and is of great spiritual significance to these tribes. Of the over 200 homes and ceremonial buildings built, 91 structures, plus 27 work camps; have been found. This site is open from mid-May through September.
