Sunset at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Colorado.
The Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge is a 16,000-acre national wildlife refuge located adjacent to Commerce City, Colorado, in the United States. It is approximately 8 miles northeast of downtown Denver. The facility is on the grounds of the former Rocky Mountain Arsenal, a United States Army chemical weapons manufacturing facility. The site was designated a national wildlife refuge in 1992 by Congress, and underwent a costly environmental cleanup in order to remove pollutants. The refuge is managed by the Fish and Wildlife Service.
