Our home state of Colorado is beautiful. The Rocky Mountains are truly majestic. Hiking trails for all activity level are plentiful. The rivers are clear with melted snow. So, as you would expect there are many Colorado State Parks. Today we want to show you Eldorado Canyon State Park.
This park is located between Denver and Boulder, so it is perfect for a day trip. We love the water and waterfalls.
It is still rather early in the summer, so the rivers are running fast with heavy snow melt.
Eldorado State Park has many hiking trails. This is the beginning of one that is located near the Visitor’s Center.
In this park, humans climb these steep rocks.
Ducks do not climb tall, steep rocks. The geology of this canyon is varied. Geologists can study millions of years of the earth’s history here. These large rocks have several colors and minerals in them.
Oh my, there is a human climbing this rock.
Yep, there is the human climber.
This park has something for everyone. You can hike, climb rocks, have picnics, and even camp here. But sometimes we just like to sit by the river, listening to the water and admire the huge steep rock cliffs and bright blue Colorado sky.
We just like to relax and enjoy the soothing sights and sounds of nature. We hope you also take time to enjoy the calming effects of nature.
The runoff has been pretty strong this year, but if you’re not on the water, it certainly adds to the beauty! 🙂
It certainly is beautiful. For rivers this fast I am happy to sit nearby and admire them. Thanks for reading and commenting.
Were you tempted to go for a ride on that white water ducks?
No. We do not have duck size life preservers. Watching the rapid water is soothing for us. Being in it might be too much for little ducks. What is Justin Beaver doing now? We miss hearing from our friend. Thanks for reading and commenting.
He went on the cruise with us and got up to all sorts of mischief.
Sounds fun. Ducks are jealous.
