Visiting Barr Lake in the Winter

On the 23rd of December, Barr Lake State Park was teeming with activity — Eagles, Red-tailed Hawks, Geese and Pintail Ducks, Song Sparrows, Red Squirrels, and a beautiful approaching sunset. The holiday decorations were still in sight at the Nature Center. It was a perfect afternoon at the park! Don’t let the cold temperatures keep you from enjoying the wonders of Barr Lake!

Each year we decorate Barr Lake State Park with beautiful lights.  This year was especially wonderful!  The lights were amazing!  Adults and kids alike had a great time!  Friends of Barr Lake is so lucky to be able to help make this evening a success year after year! And Santa was VERY busy!

Christmas Time at Barr Lake

There is nothing more beautiful than a snowy Christmas at Barr Lake State Park!  These amazing photos were actually taken a couple of weeks ago during the Thanksgiving Waddle Walk-off.  But, we can always hope for more of this beauty next week!

Not everyone lives near a beautiful state park like Barr Lake, but almost everyone lives within driving distance of a place to get out and enjoy the fresh air and magnificence of nature.
