Castlewood Canyon State Park

Well this is just flat out ridiculous. We've lived her 4 years now and are just now getting around to visiting a very nearby state park - Castlewood Canyon. It is less than 15 minutes from our home, and is a gorgeous setting. Lots of hikes and walks of various levels of difficulty. We packed a picnic and made an afternoon of it. We ditched the stroller at the trail head of a moderate hike that included a lot of up and down levels of rock which broke way to the stream that lies at the bottom of the canyon. It was so beautiful. And the greenery provided perfect shade on a rather warm afternoon. The boys did amazingly well. We'll definitely be back again as there are a variety of hikes left for us to explore. Lovely!
