Hiking in Roxborough State Park

I, Zeb the Duck, went hiking with Soapy Smith Duck and mom.  Roxborough State Park is 25 miles south of Denver and we loved it!

Mom picked a trail and we started down the path.

Then we saw this sign warning us about poison ivy.

Poison Ivy??  Be careful!!

Be careful mom.  We don’t want to spend a few days itching.   We looked back at the Visitor’s Center.

Great view of rock formations don’t you think?  Our trail led us through a wooded area with many wild flowers.  Of course we ducks think yellow flowers are the best color.

An employee told us the wild flowers lasted longer this season because we had more rain this year.  They are so pretty—we saw yellow, white, blue and purple flowers.  At a break in the trees these rock formations came into view.

Beautiful rock formations

WOW!!  Roxborough State Park also has lighter colored rock formations.

We could not pick a favorite.  The trail had this bridge to cross the creek.

When we were driving away from the trails, this male was watching us.

We all loved Roxborough State Park and we will be back for more hiking while admiring the beautiful scenery.  We would like to meet you on a trail here.

We will be looking for you
