Boating on the Horsetooth Reservoir in Colorado


Boating on the Horsetooth Reservoir in Colorado
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for August 23, 2020

On our last day in Colorado, we went to the Horsetooth Reservoir just west of Fort Collins.  The reservoir was created in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains via 4 dams built in 1949.   It's about 6.5 miles long from north to south and 1 mile wide.  

Krazy Kory wanted to rent a boat and explore the area.  We were all for it as we'd never really been on water this near the mountains.  

Our family has been fortunate to have spent so much time on the water this summer.  Now we were getting to do it again.

Krazy Kory had wanted to take his kids out on the reservoir for sometime so we were glad to be with them for the experience.

We did some swimming, but only Ben and Avery were willing to go up on shore.  I was too afraid the red rocks would stain my feet.

We saw some deer along the shore which was fun.  Unfortunately they didn't come to us when we called them.  I was hoping to get some photos of them swimming.

All in all, we had a fantastic vacation to Colorado.  We look forward to getting back there again soon.

The boys like to joke that when they graduate from college in the Spring of 2021, they won't be having any more vacations with us.  I hope they've kidding because we sure do have a lot of fun together.
