Chatfield Reservoir typically is a good place for a sunrise.
When the sun makes an appearance, that is. We've gravitated toward Seattlesque weather for the past couple of weeks, so we've had to look at the clock to see the time. The sky provides few clues.
All that rain, combined with spring run-off, has made the Reservoir a bit deep.
The Swim Beach is underwater!
Picnic tables are at See Food Level.
Bird baths are easily accessible.
Chatfield is just one reservoir on the South Platte River designed to prevent flooding of the metro area. Which means the South Platte is running a bit high these days, too.
And the waterfowl are loving every minute of it!
