What to Do in the Rockies: November


NEAR BRIGHAM CITY, UT SWOON OVER SWANS

Making their way from Alaska to central California, the graceful, black-billed tundra swans stop in Northern Utah-where they munch on the plentiful sago pondweed found at the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge. And, during the second and third weeks of November, when their numbers peak, you get to view upward of 30,000 long-necked creatures perform nature's own version of Swan Lake.

Warren Ave.; www. du.edu or 303/571-5172. -TED ALAN STEDMAN

WINE FEST FOR THE REST

True, the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen is considered the Rockies' culinary red carpet for enophiles looking to sip and sup with star chefs-but the price of admission is as steep as Aspen Mountain. The rest of us palate pleasure seekers prefer the walletfriendly Denver International Wine Festival: three days of tastings from 80 wineries, as well as pairing competitions and Colorado's top toques dueling for the Chef of the Year title. …
