Colorado Day 7 - Yampa River Botanic Park
|Rod is ready in mountain bike gear|
After paralleling the river a bit I came to a little gate where I entered the garden. One would have no idea about the marvelous treat inside. So I slipped open the gate and inside like some errant Peter Rabbit. Someone in the area planted a magnificent garden, ripe for the looking. There were trees by the gate which revealed a shaded woodland garden.
The rock garden was next on the walk. Astounded that I would find such a flowing rock garden in the midst of this very winter resort town in the mountains of Colorado, I was stopped in my tracks. Bloom was peak!
