The Agile Fox Friday Foto – 06.15.2012

After a year and a half of including a ‘pic of the week’ at the end of my weekly training summary, I’ve decided to let it stand as a post of its own.  I’m also implementing a rule that the Friday Foto needs to have been taken sometime in the last week.  No recycling.  I am doing this to keep me engaged in building my photography skills, and to make me work harder to get fresh shots.  Click here to see my previous Friday Foto posts.

Roxborough State Park is on the small side for a state park, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in scenery.  The dramatic red rock formations are the highlight, rising like the spine of a prehistoric monster swimming beneath the earth’s crust.  Although the park is adjacent to a housing development and a golf course, it feels very remote and is noticeably quiet.  Horses and bikes are not allowed, this is a park for hiking with several trails of varying difficulty to choose from.  I run there fairly often, but it’s rare to spot another runner.

Wildlife is plentiful in the park.  There is a thriving deer population, and I have spotted two different black bears on two different evenings in just the past week.  Rattlesnakes are present, as well as raptors like owls, hawks, and Golden Eagles.
