Colorado’s Front Range, Western Slope, eastern plains and southern approaches were home to some of the state’s stranger people, places and events. Meet Mike the Headless Chicken from Fruita and a Fort Collins architect who designed a university building to house his wife—after he killed her. Learn about Florence’s “The Alcatraz of the Rockies” or Doc Holliday’s final breaths in Glenwood Springs. Dig into the odd conspiracy theories and underground city connected to the Denver International Airport. Walk alongside dinosaur tracks, scout out old mines and ancient petroglyphs or climb into Mesa Verde’s shaded, mysterious cliff dwellings. Author Cindy Brick shares quirky, odd and intriguing episodes in Colorado history.
