Castlewood Canyon 7/19/12

Castlewood Canyon is a beautiful state park that is relatively easy to access from both the Denver and Colorado Springs metro areas - you don't have to drive hours in the mountains.  We've covered pretty much every trail in two visits, and it can be done in one with a bit of planning.  There are homestead ruins, the ruins of the dam that burst in the 30's (I think), a beautiful bridge for the highway, and nice wildlife like crayfish, frogs, deer, and I even saw a Rainbow Trout swimming upstream apparently all the way from the Cherry Creek Reservoir.  This is one everyone needs to see at some point.
