After spending the weekend in Denver, that was from may 10th to 12th, we decided we would need some wilderness time. The first thing on our way would be "Castlewood Canyon Sate Park". So we drove there and it really wasn't far at all. What we didn't take into account was mothers day weekend and that a lot of people were having picnics all over the place. Including the park. There was a huge line at the park entrance and the parking lot was quite flooded with people. Uh.
We were hoping that most of them would stay at the picnic areas or at least not too far away from their cars.
So we started our hike. Two bottles of water, some fruit, and yummy raw macaroons that we found earlier that day at whole foods in our bag-pack. A thick layer of sun screen on our faces, ears and legs and hats on since the sun was burning intensely.
There was the remaining of a huge ancient dam, too. Two gigantic pieces of wall. The path curved around it and stayed close to the creek for a little while. Then it went up along the side of the canyon again and we could see the water from far up. There was a little fall side. And still lots of people. Too many..
Having a picnic close to the car, when the sun was already getting low and driving towards Pueblo to find a place to sleep, we agreed that this had been a great day.
