Castlewood Canyon

Saturday we had planned to head out early to Colorado Springs, but with bad weather in the forecast, we decided to stick closer to home and go to Castlewood Canyon.

We packed up the dogs and started our hike around lunchtime. We had a good hike down through the canyon and then turned towards the waterfall.

We made it up to the rim, then went back down by the old dam.  On the way, the kids walked out over the old dam.

The dogs had fun as well, though it was hot for them. When it started to thunder, Deuce was scared, and we hurried back in a light rain.

A fun family day, capped off by a movie later at night.
