On Monday I'll check with the Canon City Water Department, but I am not optimistic. No doubt they put that sturdy fence there for a reason. Water Department rules got tight nationally after the tragedy of 9/11.
I'll also ask what the penalties are for going past the fence. And I'll inquire about visiting hours at the County Jail.
At best we could ask for permission for organized field trips to enter the area, like the permission Denver Water grants us to drive around Marston Reservoir for the Denver Christmas Counts.
Who can find other choice spots in Fremont County where Rufous-crowned Sparrows breed?
