Looking to the Mouth of the Canyon     by Milt Moody  İMilton G. Moody

Directions:  From just inside the north city limits of Sterling take the road going east to Palisade State Park.  After about 1 1/2 miles turn off to the right where there is a sign.  In about 2.8 miles birding along this dirt and gravel road you will reach a good parking area as the canyon broadens out.

Descripton:  The pinyon-juniper habitat of the lower part of the canyon gives way to a more varied area of cottonwoods, scrub oak, river birch and mountain mahgany as the road narrows between the rocky cliffs.  As the canyon  and then eventually to ponderosa pine
