Castlewood Canyon

A recent Sunday drive south on Parker Road out of Denver ended at Castlewood Canyon State Park. This is a lovely state park with hiking trails, sightseeing, and picnic areas.  Cherry Creek runs along the bottom of the canyon.  Ruins of the Castlewood Canyon Dam that broke in 1933 flooding Denver and an abandoned homestead reveal bits and pieces of local history.   This park should be on your list of places to visit this year.

I know I’ll be going back.
