Welcome to Ambient Colorado. I’m Sarah Vitak.

Let the many winds of Colorado carry you across the state.

We begin with the breeze whistling over the edge of Cucharas Canyon in the south.

Rustling leaves of aspen trees create unique music in this canyon.

We’ll add the rush of wind though spruce trees from the Fraser Experimental Forest … west of Denver.

Then we visit the windswept prairies of Northern Colorado. On the Pawnee National Grassland … windmills are rhythmically pumping water for grazing cattle.

Finally … we return to Cucharas Canyon at night … where a chorus of crickets join the whistling wind.
