Photo Essay: A Colorado Afternoon at the Lake

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Star View Real Estate CO: II100035296

Destination:  Lake Pueblo State Park, Colorado.  Even though it is near the end of September and the weather is starting to cool down, this weekend was great weather to be out on the lake.  Not too hot, not too cold, not too windy.  Just perfect. 

Sailboat at Lake Pueblo State Park

The Lake Pueblo Reservoir at the Lake Pueblo State Park is about an hour south of Colorado Springs.  It is a popular water sport and fishing destination.  The Reservoir has over 60 miles of shore line and about 4,500 acres of surface water.   There are two marinas.

We used the boat ramp at the North Shore Marina.  I enjoyed seeing the different boats almost as much as I did being out on the water. 

This weekend people were out on jet skis, people were water skiing, and lot of people were fishing.  Some people, like us, were just cruising around.

Beautiful photos and the sky is soooo blue.  Something we haven't seen here in a while.

Miss Sondra...there is nothing for me like being out on the water....whether it's sliding quietly through the placid blue waves on a sailboat in the Caribbean or feeling the rush of excitement while on a VERY FAST powerboat, it's in my blood. I love the photo of your dog, the best.

Being on the water and waking up to whatever it brings, soothes my soul and creates the beginning to a great day.

Great photos of this lake Sondra. I was unaware of many lakes in Colorado, it being such a mountain state but the mix of the water, mountains, and marina look like real fun times.

Sondra,

You took us on a wonderful pictorial adventure.  My favorite shot is the last one, because the dog says it all.  The enjoyment is complete, and I feel like the dog having enjoyed a great adventure. Thanks A

Hi Sondra,

That does look like a perfect day to be outside and on the water.  So hard to think about work on days like that!
