Nature Walk

St. Vrain State Park just outside Longmont offers 604 acres of recreational with 87 year-round water and electric campsites.  Its 236 acres of ponds host the state's largest rookery of Blue Heron and is home to several other bird species including migrating waterfow., songbirds, and the occasional bald eagle.  Other park activies include year-round fishing and hiking.  

The longest walk is around Pelican Pond.

Along one side we walked along a grassy meadow

with St. Vrain Creek running between us.

As we walked we were treated to wildflowers blooming everywhere,

and lots of birds.

The only drawback to the park is that I 25 borders one entire edge of the park.  The noise is very loud throughout the entire park.  

We enjoyed our walk, but decided that one visit here was enough.

Next, hiking in RMNP
