Barr Lake State Park

  Barr Lake State Park has it all.  Biking, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, boating, bird watching and nature viewing.  In the winter you’ll find the eagle nesting and in the summer you’ll find over 300 species of birds.  I have been going at least once a season, if not more.  It’s easy to get to […]

Sun Flower Farm

Sunflower Farm in Longmont, Colorado is a working farm that is open to the public. It’s the perfect place to visit for young kids, animal lovers, and photographers.    They have lots of animals to pet, feed and photograph.  Including BABIES.   They also have plenty of activities for kids.  I was pleasantly surprised with […]

Roxborough State Park

This is the second time I have hiked Roxborough State Park.  There are plenty of trails to last more than a day, so I would recommend going during different seasons.  Get your park pass here. The fall is also spectacular there as well!  Timing it right is key!  My favorite trail is the  Fountain Valley.  Stop […]

Golden Super Cruise

If you are a car enthusiast, like me, the Golden Super Cruise is the place to be on the first Saturday of the month (May-Aug) here in the Denver area.  Custom cars of all sorts park in business/retail parking lots along South Golden Road.   Each time we go, we park our custom renovated Gremlin in […]

Audubon Nature Trail

This was one of my favorite trails for nature viewing and birding.  The Audubon Society of Denver manages these trails and track migrating birds here.  The perfect time to go is late spring and early summer when you get to hear and see many species of birds and waterfowl.  You will also probably see turtles, […]

Nature Photography

 My new Tamron 600 zoom lens is awesome for capturing great bird shots.  It weighs about 6lbs with  my camera, so it takes getting used to holding.  I don’t usually use a tripod during long hikes because it just gets in the way, especially when you have hiking poles and other gear.  If you love […]

Hiking in Colorado

Colorado is one of the best states for hiking trips and living only 20 minutes from the foothills makes it great for some quick day hikes.  My favorite is Indian Peaks Wilderness because it’s a short drive on backroads making it only 55 minutes to get to and you can get up to 13k feet […]
