Solar Eclipse
Dubbed the Great American Eclipse, all areas of the country will be able to see at least a partial solar eclipse, in which the moon covers the sun; those in a 70-mile wide stretch starting in Oregon and stretching to South Carolina will be able to experience a total eclipse. In Colorado, the sun will be partially obscured, from about 80% in the southwest to 98% in the northeast. 
Viewers in Colorado can expect to see stages of the eclipse from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with the peak at around 11:35 a.m.

Where can I get glasses?
Some parks and libraries will have a limited supply of eclipse glasses for visitors (sponsored by the Space Science Institute's Nation Center for Interactive Learning and the Colorado Parks Foundation​), it is highly recommended visitors bring their own ISO 12312-2 compliant and CE certified glasses, or download and make a pinhole projector for safe viewing.

Double trouble. These two male prairie rattlesnakes were caught competing for a female off the trail at Castlewood Canyon State Park. What a sight!
