Highlight: Bar M Road
A drive along Bar M Road takes you back in time. On the east end, the hundred plus-year-old Brolliar Cabin sits on the edge of an alpine meadow. Born in Iowa, David Brolliar built his one-room cabin in 1911 and raised cows and crops on the prairie now known as Brolliar Park. He lived there alone until his death in 1938. Today the cabin makes a great spot to watch elk, deer, and pronghorn grazing on the park. A small pond beside the cabin often hosts migratory geese. The cabin is a short walk from the road. Farther west along the trail, ranchers use the forests and parks for summer grazing, just as they have for the last century. Branded cattle roam wild until the fall roundup when they are moved to lower elevations and winter pastures. The road nostalgically passes an old corral, battered and worn, but still in use. Take a drive back in time on the Bar M. The road is a little bumpy, but so is the region's history.
