Cheesman Canyon Hike 10/24/08
This 8.3 mile roundtrip hike followed the South Platte River to
Cheesman Dam.  The elevation change from the river was 64 feet
over 4.2 miles.  This hike is along a canyon wall above the river.
There were many boulders on
the hike--in the river.
They hung over the trail.
Some boulders even grew trees.
The river is perfect for trout.
The boulders blocked the trail.

The boulders created a very
scenic canyon.
And there were many fishermen
after the fish.
The Canyon and it's boulders!
A rainbow trout from 500 feet.
More fishermen after the fish.
The boulders were
immense.
Check this out--a tree growing
from a rock!
