Yesterday hubby and I decided to get out for my birthday. He had been wanting to go out to the Whitewater preserve, so into the car we hopped, cameras and all. Between us, we had 5 cameras! Our mountains still had the snow from a storm earlier this week and we wanted to take some photos before the next one moved in, probably late tonight. It's nice having a four-day weekend to get out and explore!
The mountains still had a lot of snow and from the preserve, we got a wonderful view of them! If you take the Whitewater road, you'll go up about 4.5 miles to the preserve, which also has a fish hatchery. You can park and explore the many trails there. They also have picnic tables. I've tried to also include some of those photos so that you can see what's up there. It's a great place to take the family and do some hiking. On one of his visits there, without me, hubby spotted bighorn sheep up on one of the ridges!
