Surrounded by the Roosevelt National Forest, it is an outdoor playground: horseback riding, fishing, hiking, biking, off-road vehicle roads, and hunting. This area is a photographers dream with an abundance wildflowers and wildlife. Look for elk, antelope, moose, mule deer, bears, quail, grouse, mountain lions, bighorn sheep and wild turkey.
