Today was a glorious Colorado fall day! I took the girls and a friend to Stanley Lake for an afternoon of exploring. The lake water level is down so we were able to walk on the soft sandy shore. Stanley Lake is a small little nature haven in the middle of the big city.
Stanley Lake is a 2,327-acre park located in Westminster, CO with 14 miles of maintained walking trails. “You can see an amazing variety of wild animals at Standley Lake Regional Park in a relatively small area. This is because the lake is an artificial reservoir created in the middle of the short grass prairie. As a result, there is a wonderful contrast between prairie, lake and wetland ecosystems.”
