First Creek at DEN Open Space

In an effort to let my dog Annie get some exercise off leash while I’m restricted to 45 minutes of walking a day by the physical therapist, I have been searching for unpopulated open spaces near Denver.  As, if I break the leash law, I’d like to do it when nobody is around.  Today, albeit freezing cold, I found the best place…First Creek at DEN Open Space.

First Creek at DEN Open Space

First Creek at DEN Open Space borders the east side of Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.  It is essentially a long, narrow strip of land through which the chip seal Buckley Road travels.  I’m certain this initial description would not entice many to take the walk.  Particularly in the summer when it is scorching hot and there is a potential for encountering rattlesnakes.
