Colorado offers such a great active lifestyle. Everywhere you turn there is nature’s beauty to enjoy, add incredible weather on top of it and you have the perfect Colorado lifestyle. It is places like and views like this that made me fall in Love with Colorado and Boulder County. This is a short drive up the foothills of the Rocky Mountain Flagstaff mountain and you get a view of snow covered mountain peaks as well as out into the plains. My new happy place. Everyone should take a walk in the woods it does a body good to get in touch with the peacefulness of nature. I could sit on the bench in the forest for hours and gaze at the view.

Clear blue sky view of the Twin Peaks, Mt Meeker 13,911 ft and Longs Peak 14,256 ft with geese hanging out on the semi frozen lake. ( Prints for sale online – Twin Peaks Blue ) History – The lake was called Dawson after John Dawson (1839-1917) before taking the name McIntosh. Dawson joined the Chicago-Colorado Colony in 1871, and farmed east of Hygiene. In 2003, the City leased the surface rights to the lake with the intention of creating a district park which will link Dawson Park, Flanders Park and Boulder County’s Lohr Open Space.
