Poudre River, Colorado

Last summer my family and I went to Colorado on vacation. We stayed with a friend in Fort Collins for a couple of days, driving along the Poudre River, and through the Rocky Mountain National Park. Then we drove down to Colorado Springs and stayed at a motel in Manitou Springs. We visited the Garden of the Gods, and the Manitou Cliff Dwellings. The pictures on this post are from the Poudre River area.
This first picture is from when we stopped along the Poudre River on our way up to the top. I liked how the rocks, pine needles, and plants looked in the sunlight along the river bank.

This one is also from when we stopped along the river bank, I liked how they were all lined up.

Also from the first time we stopped. The water was cold!
Another shot of the river.

The rocks in the river.

Rocks leading down to the river.

The path that led to the river.

Some Penstemon that was growing along the river.

One of my favorite shots! This was the view looking towards the river.

A cactus that we found along the trail towards the river.

Another view looking towards the river.

One more!

This was a picture I had taken earlier on our way up.

When we were first entering the mountain we saw farms and some crops.
This is of a corn field.

Also from when we first got into the mountains.

This was when we were headed back to Fort Collins, if you look close you can see some horses.

This was called Profile Rock, if you look close you can see why.

Another of my favorite views! This was one of the more open places on our way up to the top.

Also from the same area.

I liked the aspen trees!

Some pine trees with the sun peeking over the mountains.

I can't remember exactly where this one was taken, but it is one of my favorites.

This was when we reached the top! It was beautiful!

This is also from the top, the peak you see is Horsetooth Mountain.

I hope you enjoyed! I have lots more that I hope to get up soon!
God Bless!
