Castlewood Canyon State Park Trail
As with the Grand Canyon but on a much smaller and much less grand scale, you don’t realize it’s there until you have crossed the rolling plain and are staring speechless on the edge of a deep fissure that was carved by water eroding rock over the millennia. In the case of Castlewood Canyon, the erosion was by Cherry Creek, which is famous as the stream in which gold was discovered in 1858.
