There’s no shortage of places to play in Weld County. In the fall and winter, there are dozens of festivals, craft shows, and indoor events to keep people busy. From music and concerts to historic forts and museums, to art galleries, to Mother Nature and her finest creations turning into winter wonderlands, Weld County offers a typical Colorado playground experience to all who visit or live here.

One of the most unique recreational experiences in Weld County is offered at the Pawnee Buttes and Pawnee National Grassland in northeast Weld. The grasslands are an internationally known birding area and are popular for hiking, shooting, camping, picnicking, bicycling, star-gazing and bird-watching. The Pawnee Buttes are a majestic pair of buttes in the middle of the grasslands, rising more than 300 feet above the ground. A 2.5-mile long trail from a parking area leads to the foot of the buttes for a close-up view.

Speaking of the rolling prairie, visitors should certainly check out the Wild Animal Sanctuary in southeast Weld, where more than 400 large carnivores roam in a natural environment. Most of the animals are rescued from abusive or neglectful living situations and are rehabilitated and then released into the sanctuary’s hundreds of natural acres, where visitors can view them in an elevated walkway above the compound.

There’s not a corner of Weld County that doesn’t offer an opportunity for recreation or play. Be sure to take your time to visit all of our nearly 4,000 square miles and appreciate both the natural and man-made treasures that exist here.

The Largest Private Collection of WWII Planes,

Memorabilia of its Kind

By Kellie Heitstuman-Tomko for Explore Weld County

When Lance and Kathy Morrison delved into their family history, they discovered that Lance’s “Cousin Ted” was Edwin C. Parsons, a World War I flying ace and one of the elite “Valiant 38” members of the LaFayette Escadrille who became Rear Admiral of the U.S. Navy during World War II. The search for more information led the Texas couple to Andy Parks in Fort Lupton, Colorado. 


Parks is owner and president of the Vintage Aero Flying Museum, housed in a private hangar at the Platte Valley Airpark. The museum, a 501(c)(3) with an emphasis on history and education, is not only a working display, but it is the largest private collection of its kind in the nation. 


The museum is the personal project of three generations, starting with Parks’ grandfather Charles Parks, who was a member of the LaFayette Escadrille, a French military aerial force that consisted mostly of Americans, many fighting in WWI before the United States entered the war. His association with other WWI pilots resulted in a growing collection of memorabilia from both sides of the war. He kept the collection in his basement, but his grandson said it was far from hidden. 


“The collection has always been open to the public,” Parks said. “All anyone had to do was ask to see it.” 


The collection consists of uniforms, medals, papers, letters, drawings and other personal items that belonged to specific pilots. Uniforms are displayed on mannequins, and stories of the pilots represented accompany each display. Some of the items are official, such as military papers, awards, letters and commissions. Other items are lighter — silly comics, drawings of saucy women, a sketch of a dogfight. There were displays that contained scraps of planes with bullet holes in them and the stories of how those bullet holes got there.
Parks said the family continued to collect memorabilia over the years, a task made easier by his father’s position as an exchange professor in Germany. 


“He spoke German and French fluently,” Parks said of his father. “It made it easier to talk to the families of other pilots we knew in Europe.” 


The memorabilia are only part of the collection. While the uniforms, drawings, medals and papers are stored in cases along an upstairs walkway, the main floor of the hangar is filled with an assortment of WWI airplane replicas in various stages of reproduction. A complete, operational Fokker D.VII replica of the plane flown by German pilot Ernst Udet sits close to a replica of a Royal Aircraft Factory S.E.5. The Fokker is flanked by the bare ribs and cables of a Sopwith Camel frame. Parks works on the skeleton of another Fokker as he points out the two operational planes. 


“These planes were used in the move “The Aviator,” he said, adding that the S.E.5 was actually airborne during filming. Other planes were added using computer generated images.
Parks said the collection once had longer viewing hours, but after the economic downturn starting in 2009, hours had to be scaled back and the housing was reduced. Part of the collection can be seen at the Pueblo Weisbrod Aircraft Museum in Pueblo, Colorado. The portion that Parks kept for the Vintage Aero Flying Museum is housed in the private hangar in Fort Lupton. 


“We’re still doing lunches and events,” Parks said. “We’re still doing field trips.” 


Information about the museum can be found on the museum website, www.vafm.org. The collection is available for viewing on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but visitors should call first for a tour. 


Regardless of whether it’s researchers referred by the Smithsonian, families such as the Morrisons, who are looking for answers or children from a local school, the museum has something for everyone. 


“History has become unimportant and, during times of economic downturn, aviation at small airports like this suffers,” Parks said. “We want (people) to come out here and experience these planes and understand their history.”

EXPLORE AERO-HISTORY
The Vintage Aero Flying Museum is in a private hangar in the Platte Valley Airpark, 7507 Weld County Road 39, in Fort Lupton. Go to www.vafm.org. The collection is available for viewing on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but visitors should call first for a tour.

Shooting Games in Weld County

By James Redmond for Explore Weld County

In late July, gunshots range through the air as cowboys and cowgirls worked their way through Western-themed courses. 


Using lever-action rifles, double-barrel shotguns and old-fashioned revolvers, the group showed off their shooting skills in numerous timed competitions at a special set of Pawnee Sportsmen Center shooting ranges, at 40914 Weld County Road 71, in Briggsdale.


It’s all a part of Briggsdale County Shootists — a fully sanctioned and affiliated member of the Single Action Shooting Society —and throughout the year members and interested shooters from throughout northern Colorado gather to share their passion for the old firearms.


Mark Woodard, a 59-year-old Longmont resident, said he regularly drives to Weld County to meet the group for a cowboy action shoot. Woodward, known as Blanco Perro to the other SASS members — they all choose a shooting alias for use in the organization — loves the chance to socialize, shoot and compete.


He used to race motorcycles, but as he got older it became harder and more dangerous to compete. So he looked for something else to dedicate his time to, and that’s when he found shooting.
“I just got hooked,” Woodward said.


At the cowboy actions shoots, he gets to do something difficult, a little dangerous and a whole lot of fun. And he still gets to be outside with other similarly minded people.


“It’s awesome out here,” he said.


He loves visiting Weld County to shoot. The grasslands and western vistas look and feel the way he imagines the old West might have looked.
Woodward isn’t the only one who visits Weld County for the sake of shooting sports.

Across Colorado, open-air — and open to public — shooting ranges aren’t too common, according to Pawnee Sportmens Center owner Richard Beck.
Colorado has a serviceable amount of trap and skeet ranges, because shotguns require less space than most other firearms to safely use. But public outdoor ranges with pistol and rifle facilities are far less common, he said.


“People need access to some place to shoot and there are relatively few of them,” Beck said. 

That’s what makes Weld County a good destination for shooting and firearm tourism. Weld County has two outdoor ranges that accommodate pistol and rifle shooters, Beck said. And the area has decent weather, at least good enough to keep outdoor ranges open all year, he said.


Great Guns Sporting, 16126 Weld County Road 96, in Nunn, offers trap and skeet ranges in addition to their 25-yard pistol range and their 100-, 200- and 300-yard rifle ranges.
Pawnee Sportmens Center also offers trap and skeet shotgun ranges, a 25-yard pistol range and 100-, 250- and 1,000-yard rifle ranges.

The range options bring in a lot of visitors to the Pawnee Sportmens Center, Beck said. He meets visitors from Colorado Springs, Golden, Sterling and Wyoming.
Pawnee’s 1,000-yard range offers shooters a unique experience, Beck said.


Since the Gulf War, interest in long-range rifle shooting has grown considerably, he said. It’s still a niche part of the shooting hobby, but more people want to learn and practice firing highly specialized rifles at staggeringly long distances.

Many people who served in the military, since then, either served as snipers, Beck said. Although they’re no longer serving, they still enjoy practicing that skillset.
“The long range is a fairly big draw for us,” he said.

However, the shorter rifle and pistol ranges bring in most of the business, Beck said.


The variety of ranges offer experienced shooters a multitude of options. Many shooters come in the months leading up to hunting season to practice and prepare. And classes and instructors at ranges give firearm newcomers a way to learn more and get into the sport as well, he said.

OTHER SHOOTING OPPORTUNITIES
Weld County also offers shooters a couple other great reasons to visit and practice their sport.
In the scenic Pawnee National Grasslands, the Baker Draw Designated Shooting Area has dirt berms providing with 25-, 50- and 100-yard shooting ranges.
The area is open seven days a week from dawn to dusk, or as otherwise posted with occasional closures for cleaning and maintenance.
The free site is located near Weld County roads 96 and 63.
And when weather might drive away even the most dedicated marksmen, visiting shooters still have options. Liberty Firearms Institute, 4990 Ronald Reagan Blvd., in Johnstown, has indoor 25-, 50- and 100-yard shooting ranges available for rent.
