A special friend of mine works with animals and nature. So, with that one in mind, I took a stroll along the South Platte River Trail in the Lower Downtown area. The place I have been working is right across the street from the river, so it's a quick hop beyond the pavement and I am there.
The trail is part of a pretty elaborate trail system that crosses the Denver Metro area. I tried to follow it on Google Earth but it branches out in so many places that I was overwhelmed. I have been told that you can ride a bike from just about anywhere to anywhere else, using the trail system. I couldn't verify that, but it sure reaches out there.
