Around Here: Crystal Creek Reservoir

posted by on 09/15/2014 | 7,375 comments (leave one of your own)

We recently drove up Pikes Peak Highway to hike around Crystal Creek Reservoir.


Troy took the time on the way up to pose for his senior portrait overlooking Colorado Springs and Cascade.



Since it was late afternoon, we were pretty much the only people there.


Except for the crew that was conducting a kayak photo shoot.


While we were hiking around the reservoir, I mentally pictured myself in a kayak and then decided I probably should get a canoe. It seems safer.


The Aspens are starting to turn, that’s what happens here right before we get pummeled with nine months of snow.


That’s Pikes Peak right there in the middle of this photo, I kept saying “It’s right there!” which isn’t annoying at all.


We all reveled in the beauty of nature until we just mostly wanted to go back to the car for beef jerky and a juice box.


P.S. The Miracle Marathon starts tomorrow and I’m more than halfway to my fundraising goal. You can sponsor one of my 27 miles here if you are into that sort of thing.

Happy Monday, beef jerky for everyone.

    I must show appreciation to the writer for bailing me out of such a setting. Right after scouting throughout the world wide web and obtaining concepts that were not beneficial, I believed my entire life was well over. Existing without the strategies to the issues you have sorted out by means of this review is a critical case, as well as ones which may have negatively damaged my entire career if I had not noticed the blog.

    I?m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that?s both equally educative and
    amusing, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I came across this during my search for something concerning this.
