Manitou Lake

We actually got up and going at a decent time today, that’s pretty amazing for us on a Saturday. We got some stuff finished up in the yard, Home Depot installed the new microwave, and I packed a lunch and we hit the road. We ended up at Rampart Reservoir where we got rained on. The fire damage up there is amazing, heart breaking really for such a beautiful area. We left there, stopped in woodland park for a bit, then ended up at Manitou Lake. We saw some Pelicans, a beaver, and a few other fun birds.

American White Pelicans

There have been some Pelicans hanging out at Fountain Creek Nature Center. I went down there at lunch today. I guess I can probably blame “finding nemo”, whenever I do a pelican voice in my head, it has to have an Australian accent.
