I am IN LOVE with exploring nearby parks in Colorado! A few weeks ago, the weather decided to be warm and gorgeous (50F-60F) over one weekend. I told Adam that we HAD to go on another photo walk somewhere new. I am obsessed with photo walks BTW, haha! So I Googled trails near Denver and after doing some browsing came across this beautiful Park!
That weekend’s choice was Chautauqua Park in Boulder. I wanted to go see the mountains in person 🙂 Well, one thing we were not expecting was the wind. It was incredibly windy and Adam was only wearing a thin jacket (I was covered head to toe since I hate being cold. LOL). The other thing we didn’t anticipate was ice on the trail. Ice + Wind = Free Skiing down the trail. We only made it up so far before we had to turn back. But no matter! We decided to drive up Flagstaff Road in Boulder to check out the view. Wow! It didn’t disappoint! We finished our drive at Walker Ranch where we had just enough time to take a few photos of the sunset and then drive back 🙂 If you live here or have visited before, what are some of your favorite trails near Denver?
BTW we totally found the back entrance to Moria 🙂 Who knew it was in Colorado all along? 🙂 Any Lord of the Rings fans in the house?
