I have a mental list in my head of parks I love and will or have returned to repeatedly, and a list of parks that I'll never go to again. Sorry, Daniel's Park of Castle Pines, Colorado, I won't be returning to you.
I personally felt that Daniel's Park was lacking a lot of potential for the amount of land it has. Basically, you enter the park and follow a gravel trail that runs alongside the road. There were only two place to leave this trail that went out to overlooks, but they were short and the two overlooks gave the same view.
I'm not trying to be snarky or anything, just realistic. I won't be going back. It's a great exercise park (for walking or biking back and forth on the trail), but not much for photography purposes.
With that all being said.... I still had a wonderful time with my honey bunches of oats, Jeremiah, his brother, Nathan, and the Golden Girls, Autumn and Sequoia.
If there had been trails that went into the canyon or more trees (shade, please), we probably would have been in love with this park.
Also, it was Sequoia's first big walk on the leash. She did relatively well. The lead (the part that goes around her nose) helped a ton with her pulling, but she kept trying to get it off. What else would you expect from a puppers?
I did enjoy that we got to see bison, even if they weren't wild. They were so far away that even my telescopic lens had a little trouble getting a closer up shot.
I also really enjoyed this farmhouse. Not sure why. I think it is adorable.
