If you enjoy visiting towns with interesting facts, a trip to Calhan, Colorado might be in order. It's the highest elevated town in the United States of America that isn’t on a mountain. Just northeast of Colorado Springs, Calhan was originally founded as a refueling and restocking town for the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad. Today, Calhan has evolved into a bit of an agricultural town as well as a community that is proud of its natural surroundings and works to live alongside the natural beauty of Colorado.

Just a short drive to the southwest, on the other side of Colorado Springs, is the Beaver Creek State Wildlife Area near Penrose, Colorado.

Visitors are also welcome to fish in the many cold water streams that trace their way through the park.
An easy day trip from Calhan is the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Denver, Colorado.

As you work your way through the refuge, you’ll probably forget that you’re right on the edge of the capital of Colorado.
