One last look at Colorado for now

We only saw a few bison during our drive through Rocky Mountain Arsenal Park.

The view of downtown Denver from the park.

I did not want to leave. Even though we had cold rainy weather the entire trip out here I could so live here. Maybe I’m just tired of the beach and heat after living in Florida for almost 16 years.

I had a window seat on the way home.

I knew I was getting close to home when I saw so much water.

Where to next????

Too many birds in one place.

Someone had left a pile of bait fish on the pier. The birds were going crazy.

They were all fighting over the free meal.

Someone walked over to the bait fish and started to pick them up. The birds weren’t too happy.

A cute plane flew overhead.

A young boy was holding this fish in his left hand while playing a game on his phone with his right hand. Multitasking on the pier!

Another sad sighting. A lady on the pier was trying to get him to come down by waving a bait fish at him so she could take the hook out. At first he ignored her and then flew off.

Right before lunch, the  moon was still out at the end of the pier.

There was a nice breeze  up on the fishing pier at Fort Desoto in the middle of September. Beautiful sunny day.
