The Colorado Tour Heads into the Rockies

Dateline: Eagle, CO

The Colorado Tour visited Sylvan Lake State Park on Friday and Saturday of the Labor Day Weekend. The park is located in a beautiful remote valley that reaches deep into the heart of the Rockies. It is especially popular as a fishing destination for both day-trippers and overnight campers.

A refreshing rainstorm on Friday night sweetened the dry Colorado air and Saturday dawned fresh and clear. Our outreach booth overlooking the idyllic mountain lake attracted a steady stream of curious hikers and fishermen.

We spent a full day playing the Leave No Trace Quiz for Clif Bar prizes, and swapping tales about outdoor experiences and the ones that got away...

...along the Colorado Trail,
Peggy and Barrett
