Trip Reports

Oct 11 - Upper Platte, Veteran's Park to Platte Lake

 | Published on 10/11/2016
A 2nd Tuesday in a row with Jocelyn & Roseanne, but this trip was on the Upper Platte, from Veteran's Park to Platte Lake. We spotted a blue heron, immature eagle, swans & a few salmon, but not much fall color. The water level provided good coverage & flow, and the weather was warm. We had lunch on a friend's bench in Honor, then finished up in 3 hrs. Of course, the only one who got to nap was Max, before we all scurried off to our late afternoon plans. Fall fun with 2 BFF!
