Fall Field Trip #2

Hudson Gardens

Hudson Gardens

We are probably going for 3 field trips to study the Fall.  We have already gone to the Botanic Gardens, this trip was to Hudson Gardens, next one is straight to the mountains.

Hudson Gardens is a great place.  This “about” is from their own website:

The Gardens reflect the multitude of plants, flowers and trees and thrive in the dry Colorado climate, and include land that varies from high, dry prairie to wetlands near the river.Thirty acres of gardens are arranged in a continuous flow featuring ponds, wildlife, sculpture, a garden railroad, adventure hideaways and spectacular natural displays along a mile-and-a-quarter walking path. Quite simply, The Gardens are an oasis of serenity in the midst of the City that allow visitors to simply enjoy their distinct beauty or learn how to beautify their own yards and businesses.

We visited them this past Friday, the month of September only requires $1 for admission, we simply could not pass it up.

We checked out a Family Explorer pack which added to the fun.  Also, you will notice 4 boys in the pictures, cousin Adam got to come along!
