Hike — Deer Creek Canyon

The family took a hike in Deer Creek Canyon, at the southwest corner of the Denver metro area last week. This was before it turned cold and rainy/snowy. The trail has a mixture of grassland, scrub brush, and forest (Ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, scrub oak, aspen, and others).
