Through Instagram and my blog, I have started to meet some local people with whom I have common interests, such as hiking and walking. Recently, I was honored to meet Chris Englert with Denver By Foot. She has written books about many of the metro trails I have been walking of late. We met at Carpio Sanguinette Park, looped around Heron Pond, and walked part of the Platte River Trail to the Burlington Ditch.TAKE A WALK
Carpio Sanguinette Park
Recently I’ve been exploring different parks and open spaces in and around Denver to give my dog Annie a change of scenery. Today I visited Carpio Sanguinette Park, Heron Pond Nature, and Heller Open Space which connect to make up 83 acres.
I selected Carpio Sanguinette Park for a variety of reasons. First, it is only 15 minutes away from my house. Second, based on the map it looked like it featured a large green space with a potential to walk on a natural trail through Heller Open Space. Finally, located in an industrial area, I hoped it would be quiet so Annie had freedom to run.
To my surprise, the area exceeded my hopes and expectations.PLAY AT THE PARK!
