The Georgetown Wildlife Viewing area is a shelter located at the edge of Georgetown Lake, less than a mile from "downtown" Georgetown. The viewing shelter offers coin operated viewing binoculars and interpretive signs that tell the story of the Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep that live on the nearby hillside. Between 300 and 400 sheep make up what we call the "Georgetown herd," though the sheep use the mountain habitat for several miles around the area. Bighorn sheep can be seen from the Viewing Area any month of the year, but the best viewing is in the late fall/early winter. This is the time of the bighorn sheep courtship and mating season (the "rut") and their activities bring the animals all together and also offer the chance to see some dramatic courtship displays. Georgetown plans to host its second "annual" Bighorn Sheep Festival the second Saturday in November. That would be a great time to visit.
To get to the viewing area, take Interstate 70 to Georgetown (about an hour west of Denver). Take exit 228 (the Georgetown exit); at the bottom of the off-ramp turn left; at the stop sign (Alvarado Road) turn left and follow the lake shore to the Viewing Area.
Thanks for your interest!
