All my local paddling waters are covered by ice. Even the Horsetooth Reservoir is partially frozen as seen in this recent picture of the Inlet Bay. So, it’s time for more hiking, biking and inline skating or driving to the South Platte River which is open and flowing.
Here is a little gallery of pictures shot during winter time along the Cache la Poudre River in Fort Collins. They came from favorite natural areas, Arapaho Bend and Riverbend Ponds or just from the Poudre biking trail.
These images are available for licensing as royalty free digital downloads starting with $2 directly from my stock photography portfolio. Recently, I started to sort my Colorado portfolio into several galleries. It should not be surprising that three of them are related to water:
Horsetooth Reservoir and Horsetooth Mountain Open Space near Fort Colorado – a great area for water sports, hiking, climbing, trail running, and mountain biking. It is my favorite local destination for kayak, canoe and SUP paddling.
Cache la Poudre River
Pictures from the Poudre Canyon as well as pictures of the river as seen from biking trails in Fort Collins and downriver all the way to Greeley and confluence with the South Platte River.
Water issues mostly in Colorado – river diversion, irrigation, ditches, water pollution. Many pictures in this gallery are shot from a kayaker perspective.
