Northglen Webster Lake Temporary Escape from Winter

Northglen Webster Lake Adventure

It was a warm winter day.  At least in the 80’s.  We took advantage of the warm weather and headed over to Northglen Webster Lake in CO.  A small park with a lake and at least three acres of trails.  Along the trail there were picnic tables, flowerbeds and trees.  Spent most of the time watching my grandaughter play in the playground.  It was a picture perfect day.

Caught these guys swimming around and lounging in the water. A rare site for me being from NYC and I really enjoyed taking in the sites at Northglen Webster Lake

And of course!! My Beautiful grandaughter and her cute innocent stare.  Gave me a hard time to get this shot but then when she saw the camera it was as if the little model inside turned on and she posed like she was a rock star.

Rock Climbing in Vegas. Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Canyon Rock Climbing

Ok Let me make it clear I was not rock climbing in Vegas.  I was to busy trying to stay steady on my feet while holding my camera to get these shot.  Maybe if I was younger but no way not now.  Despite my shaky hands managed to snap a few good shots of some young people climbing and hiking in Red Rock Canyon.

Brave young souls and they made it look so easy. So glad I got to see it. Don’t know when I will be back but so glad I got to capture the moment.

Red Rock Canyon was just a few minutes from the strip and it was quite the adventure. The morning can start out cold and change to really hot mid day. We did not venture to far from our car only because we did not know about where we were. We will definitely head out to Red Rock Canyon next time we are there and maybe we will do some rock climbing of our own. OK maybe just a very tiny tiny rock.
