During the winter I always miss our sunny mountain hikes. We tried out a new to us hike around Barr Lake to see if it would fill the space missing during these winter days.
We visited Barr Lake Nature Center and trails. We were hoping to walk all the way around the lake but they had a section closed off for nesting Bald Eagles.
Trail snacks are key to happiness!
The Nature Center had lots of fun things to explore and the kids really enjoyed spending some time there.
There are some beautiful boardwalks around the lake.
The friendship these two share is one of the best things in my life. It’s nice to always have your best friend with you.
The area was beautiful and we enjoyed our visit but it didn’t really scratch the itch for mountain hikes. We will continue to seek out adventure.
