Clear Creek

On Sunday we knew that fall was quickly coming to an end with a snowstorm predicted for this week. So even though we knew we wouldn’t be alone on the trails, Sharon and I hiked on a weekend day anyway.

We hiked the trails on both sides of Clear Creek in Wheat Ridge’s Prospect Park. About 25 miles south of Boulder, where each of us live and only a dozen miles from downtown Denver, this lovely Park is an oasis in the city. And once we got more than a few feet from the parking lot we had the trails mostly to ourselves and the birds.

We saw an many birds as people. And this hawk surrounded by fall foliage was my favorite.
