Pawnee National Grassland & Pawnee Buttes

Pawnee National Grassland sprawls across the plains from Fort Morgan to the Northeast section of Weld County. The endless horizon along the route is something to marvel.
The landscape has it’s own distinct and fragile beauty. It is not uncommon to see a wide variety  of wildlife along the way!
As you glance across the endless horizon, you will see the
magnificent sentries of the plains. The Pawnee Buttes. A
stark contrast to the vast openness of the surrounding landscape. Rising over 250 feet above the plains, the eroded
columns of sandstone have resisted eons of natural forces that
have eroded the surrounding area.

Barn Quilt Tour

​After traveling through Iowa to Wisconsin, Nancy Lauck, a quilting enthusiast, was fascinated with the Barn Quilts that she found. She found the idea behind it to be important for farming communities. After being approached about spearheading the movement in Morgan County, Nancy loved the idea and since the barn on her farm was over 100 years old, it was the perfect place to start. In 2007 the barn showcased sixteen Barn Quilts. Since that time, the Morgan County Barn Quilt Project has blossomed to over 90 quilts in more than 60 different locations.
