On the 18th my wife and I volunteered with Defenders of Wildlife, hauling out old barbed-wire ranch fencing from the Betasso Preserve. Betasso is located at the junction of Boulder and Fourmile Canyons, just west of the city of Boulder. Carrying the bales up and down trails was hard work, but the reward is priceless – a safer place for both wildlife and people, as well as the restored beauty of this wonderful landscape. We were treated to a friendly fox and a herd of mule deer as soon as we arrived, too!

Later that day we decided to head to Cherry Creek State Park – quietly enjoying sunset from the shore of the lake made for a perfect end to the day.

Comments and critiques are greatly appreciated, thanks!
