Spring Mountain Ranch

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park is near Red Rocks (where we climb) but we'd never stopped there before this trip. It's small but it has some interesting history (past owners include Howard Hughes). We also enjoyed the short walk through the park.

One of the things that made the ranch sought after was that it has water from a number of springs. The lake is artificial but is still a treat in the desert.

A hawk circled overhead, too high for good photos but I tried with the lens I had.


Some of the trees were starting to flower. (Ones that flower before they get leaves.) I love spring time!
