Zeb the Duck here with Soapy Smith Duck. From Golden, Colorado, we drove with our moms to Golden Gate Canyon State Park.
The paved road winds through forests and climbs into the mountains. Soapy’s mom saw a moose and a couple deer. This park is so peaceful and relaxing.
We stopped at Kriley Pond. Some people were fishing and others hiked around the lake. If you look on the right side of Kriley Pond, our distant cousin, a black duck, is swimming.
Doesn’t he look happy?
Our next stop was Slough Pond. Wouldn’t this be a great place for a picnic?
Next time our moms will bring food for us. The creek was moving pretty fast.
We had a lot of snow this winter and the snowmelt combined with recent rain really has this water moving. Crossing the bridge, you could hike through the forest and mountain.
Golden Gate Canyon State Park has this Red Barn.
You can rent this area for your group.
Our neighbor, and friend, held a wedding here.
The newly weds look so happy. The groom is handsome and the bride is beautiful.
We wish them a very happy married life. We needed one more photo of Colorado’s beautiful mountains as we left the Red Barn.
You will love Golden Gate Canyon State Park. When you are in the Denver area, visit this park near Golden. Our moms say you will feel refreshed and renewed.
