Barr Lake State Park is within spitting distance of my house. I’m told the nature preserve houses bald eagles, deer, and other critters, so I set off on foot this afternoon to visit. Apparently, you can follow a nearby canal all the way to the lake. I say apparently, because I did not make it that far.
First, I ended up on the wrong side of the canal…the path ended in a small cliff. So I backtracked and tried the other path, only to notice a man in the distance, rifle over his shoulder, dog by his side. I decided the canal was adventure enough for the day and vowed to try again, perhaps arriving by car.
