The next time you are in Roxborough State Park, take the path to Carpenter's Peak, but before going up to the peak, turn south. Continue down the gravel road for about a half mile until you see the statue of the eagle and Greek goddess.
Take the path.
Soon you will see the mountain lions on the rock ledge. You can disregard the sign I posted yesterday about what to do if you come face to face with a mountain lion. These pumas are not going anywhere. They are delightful wooden sculptures of three little cougars playing. This is best way to experience mountain lion encounters in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
Ken and I took a hike on Sunday to visit one of the best-kept secrets in the Roxborough area. The woodland paths invite you in, calling you to play.
Turn the path to the right to see could be on the other side of the ledge. You enter a clearing with benches and in the distance -- could that be -- a throne?
This clearing was created by the Goodwins. It is truly a gift to all of us.
