Nature Walks – Gone Walk-About

I just love where we live.  As I have mentioned many times, we live on the top of 6 “lakes” or ponds, and then behind that, we have a big huge opens space area too.  Even though we live in a suburb or both Denver and Boulder, we are very blessed to have a lot of nature all around us.  With all this current chaos and craziness, about all we can do is walk, so we are doing a lot of walking.  Vinnie is absolutely loving it, every step of the way too.  Poor Lucie can’t do long walks any more, so she stays at home and protects the homefront, eagerly awaiting our return.  Here are the sights we took in from our latest walk-about around the lakes.

This is our view from the bottom of our 4th lake.

We saw quite a few turtles out for a swim, but this is the only one that was not camera shy.

The prairies dogs were out to play too.

We’re half way home Vinnie.  In total, we walked about 5 miles.

These blooms are right outside in my front yard.

After our daily walk, we came home to pizza and a ZOOMed visit with friends.  We are still social distancing, but still visiting, and supporting our local businesses all at the same time.

The twins anxiously awaiting some pizza of their own.

Stay safe and stay well everyone.

    1. I have traveled all over the place, and have seen most our states, and I just can’t help but think ours is one of the most beautiful ones around. I love the prairie dogs too, but we don’t have nearly as many as we used to. Usually we see tons of them out in the open space, but this time we only saw a few.

  1. Where you live is so nice! You’re lucky. I actually had a dream I was in CO the other night. I live in the CA wine country which WOULD be nice if we didn’t have raging, deadly wildfires almost every year and have to evacuate in the fall!
