Album: destinations:United-States:CO:Orient Land Trust Bat Cave

The Orient Land Trust is home to the old Orient Mine which is now home to a large bat colony. I'm not going to repeat the details. Look on the OLT website for those. The site is kinda cool and I was excited to see a big outflight of bats. I've seen a few others but this one is in my home state. Unfortunately the outflight was a major disappointment. Really it was just a smattering of bats and then it was over. In fact I took a few practice photos after it started and then waited for the main flight of bats. And then the bats stopped coming out and people started leaving. I was rather shocked. I stayed a long time after everyone else left thinking that there must be more bats coming, but no. So bummer. So my pics just show the OLT mine area not the bat swarm.
