Saturday ended up being a GREAT weather day ~ we hit above 80* ~ and took full advantage of it by heading out to a park that is practically in my backyard ~ but was someplace I had yet to visit. Castlewood Canyon State Park is in Franktown, CO and has many hiking trails to wander around, and many places to see the Cherry Creek flow through the park. My friends, Ashley & Dean, their two dogs, Angel and Chardy, Duncan, Dave and myself all headed down there.
It was so nice to be out in the sun ~ the trails we were on were easy to maneuver ~ but there were A LOT of other people enjoying the day as well. I wasn't sure how Dave would do, but he kept up well, even when we got off the path a little and created our own 'path' / scramble back to the top after spending time down near the creek. Duncan & Dave don't LOVE baths, so I wasn't sure if they'd go in the water..but they did venture out a short way, at least to get their paws wet...Angel & Chardy have NO reservations whatsoever. They LOVE the water...
Duncan preferred watching from above
Angel 'fetching' rocks
I think the water is still a little chilly
Ashley, Dean & the girls
Muddy dogs get to ride in the back of the car
After an afternoon out in the heat and the sun, a treat is in order...for puppies and humans...Good Times has special doggie treats called "Paw Benders" and they are only $1.00...one of the best deals out there.
