Running with 1,500-pound bulls is inherently dangerous—the organizers of the stateside Running with the Bulls don't deny that. But that doesn't mean that the thrill of Pamplona has to come with the mistreatment of the animals, which is why participants who hit, slap, harass, or otherwise impede the progress of the bulls will be removed from the venue. With those distractions aside, spectators can focus on the essence of the run: watching 12 horn-swinging bulls dash through a quarter-mile course on the heels of runners who must have heard that this event was called Running with the Lambs. But the event gives the community more than elevated heart rates, as each three-day spectacle begins with a charity run that benefits Operation Hawkeye, an organization that supports the families of Special Operations forces who've been killed in combat.

Since 1894, four generations of the Bee family tended their 160-acre farm. Part of the National Register of Historic Places since 2002, 10 acres of this preserved land now host the Bee Family Centennial Farm Museum. Through various exhibitions and activities, the museum teaches visitors about the family's efforts to cultivate their little segment of the Northern Colorado prairie.
From antique tractors and trucks to private letters and diaries, thousands of the Bee's personal effects fill their original houses, sheds, garages, and barns. In the horse barn, a wooden horse models an original harness. Meanwhile, in the milk barn, kids can milk a wooden cow. The museum's other hands-on activities include gathering eggs from nesting boxes outside the chicken house, grinding corn for animal feedings, and throwing irrigation tubes.
