Like many places in Colorado, Barr Lake is a great place to visit during any season. And it is the perfect place for bird watching in Colorado! Just a short drive northeast of Denver, this state park has a variety of trails and many great bird viewing areas. A daily pass is just $7 per vehicle. Or opt for an annual parks pass to all 42 Colorado state parks. The fee is $70 per vehicle. Plus, they have lots of fun educational events throughout the year!
On a cold Saturday morning, we met up with one of our favorite couples to check out a fun winter hike in Eldorado Canyon State Park. The park is right outside of Boulder and is a climbing mecca in the summer. But it is much less busy in the winter. So, we were excited to have the trails almost all to ourselves!
