Abstract boundaries define the borders of Colorado, which suggests it could be a state without genuine identity. But Colorado sprawls across three major landforms, and its lifescapes help define two major junctures: where biological north meets biological south and where biological west meets biological east. From this emerges a fabulous wildlife diversity that gives Colorado a unique identity. So, what if Life itself became the destination for vacations? Where could you go? What could you find? How would you find it once there? And how do you get started? The answers all come alive in “Searching for Life in Colorado.”
During summer's hot days and warm nights, Life works diligently to sustain itself. Plants make seeds, animals raise offspring, and fungi spread spores. Such effort represents a process more than an event; and the resulting flowers, frolicking youngsters, and mushrooms make being afield especially gratifying.
