Lake Granby in Arapaho National Recreation Area with Zeb, Soapy Smith and JB Duck

After stopping at the Visitor Information Center in Granby, Colorado we follow suggestions and take US 34 to County Road 6 to Arapaho National Recreation Area.   We pass this tractor, on a sign post.

Soon we arrive at Arapaho National Recreation Area.   Lake Granby is frozen and there are some snowmobiles on the snow covered frozen lake.

Many people love to ice fish and this is a great place.   These humans are setting up to ice fish.

Often humans set up shelters while ice fishing.   Here we have three shelters.

There are several on the lake today.   Some people do not use a shelter.

It is easier for us to see the fishing process without shelters.   This weekend there will be 3 Lakes Ice Fishing Contest.   Many humans will fish and compete for cash prizes.   For information about this contest visit http://www.Colorado.com   Scroll down a little to the Calendar of Events and click on 3 Lakes Ice Fishing Contest in Granby.   There is a lot of snow here.   We three ducks are on a snow bank by Lake Granby.

It was about 10 degrees here when we visited Friday.   We did not sit on this snow very long.   Near the end of Lake Granby is Arapaho Bay Campground.   The section with cabins is closed for the winter.

There are other campgrounds and picnic areas along the lake also.   We want to come back here in the summer.   We are on the bridge over the waterway connecting Lake Granby with Lake Monarch.

We hope you visit this very pretty area some time this year.   Maybe even this weekend for the 3 Lakes Ice Fishing Contest.
