Highline Canal Trail

Let me tell you, 20 degrees F certainly feels a lot different in Denver than it did in Leavenworth (see post about my trip to Leavenworth, WA from a week ago here – https://morefromreallyrose.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/leavenworth/ ).  While I realize that the frozen fog endured in Leavenworth was rare for that area, in Denver as I set out for my walk along the Highline Canal Trail, the temperature was only 20 degrees F – and I wasn’t even close to cold.

A 66 mile trail along the Highline Canal that is owned and operated by Denver Water, I started on a trail around a frozen Lollipop Lake in Garland Park in Southeast Denver. From Garland Park, I continued on to the Highline Canal for three to four miles, then turned around and walked back.
