Bar Lake State Park

Barr Lake State Park is another great place to see some of the  local wildlife.

I had to stop Stacie from almost stepping on this guy.    He was sunnning himself on the trail, minding his own buisness when he almost got stepped on.

The lake serves as a holding pond for irrigation water.  It gets pretty low this late in the season.

Happy owners of this moviestar [the horse]  brought him out to ride the trails.  Mr. Horse played in The legend of Zorro as one of three of the horses used to make the movie.  He was the one that jumped onto the moving train, and drank beer from a bottle.  The girls thought it was great to meet him.

Birds were pleantiful. 

I believe this is a hawk.
