South Park, Colorado has cabins

Zeb here.  I just returned from South Park.  Yes, it is a real place in Colorado.  My friend, Dee, has a vacation home there.

It is an A frame on 10 acres.  There are lots of trees, cool rocks, and lots of space.  So peaceful and beautiful!

We took highway 285 south to South Park from Denver, stopping at a Subway in Conifer.  No restaurants near Dee’s retreat.  Walking around the estate, I sat on dead trees, in the fork of live trees

and even on huge rocks with great shapes.

Kids make shapes from clouds and I made shapes from rocks.  This looks like a giant iguana head to me.

I sat in a bristlecone pine tree.  These are hardy trees, growing near timber line when most other vegetation has given up because of severe climate.  These trees get really old.

The University of Colorado at Boulder says in Colorado they found a tree 2435 years old.  Many are over 1600 years.  That is old!

Also I found a tepee

and a fort made from branches.  Tepee and fort were really strong.

I think Dee should call this place “Many Aspen Mountain Estate”.  There are many pine trees and pine cones make the ground feel spongy, but I believe I saw thousands of aspen trees.  Love the small shimmering aspen leaves.

It was so peaceful and beautiful in the mountains of South Park.  Many Aspen Mountain Estate is about 9200 feet above sea level.

Thin, fresh air and the sun is really intense.  Eating, hiking, talking and laughing are great.  Makes humans relax and have fun.

So peaceful.  So many aspen

Ducks have fun here, too.  We had a wonderful day.  Thanks Dee!
