The area is located in the north-central part of Colorado and is readily accessible via U.S. 34, which roughly divides the area into north and south halves (Fig. 1). The eastern boundary of the area is 8 mi (9 km) west of Loveland, where U.S. 34 enters Big Thompson Canyon. Big Thompson power plant and Little Dam are at the immediate entrance to the canyon. Hard-bottomed dirt roads run north and south from the highway and afford ready access to the eleven stops shown on Figure 1)1.
