North Cheyenne Cañon Park & Stratton Open Space

Stratton Open SpaceKaren and I went hiking along the Wildflower Path and Upper Meadows Loop as he worked our way to the South Suburban Reservoir. Nchey-Pg1The reservoir looked very black due to overcast. We walked the Chamberlain Ridgeway Spur back to our car. This open space is a great area for mountain biking as the trails are wide and smooth. Many people walk their dogs in the open area, too. (So watch your step.)

After walking in Stratton Open Space, we drove over to the Helen Hunt Falls Visitor Center so that we could hike up to see Silver Cascade Fall. This hike is very short, but it raises quickly. Karen did well on the hike, but it was a hot day for a hike.

Phantom Canyon Brewing Co

To end our evening, Karen and I headed over to Phantom Canyon Brewing Co to try an ale or two.

First, Phantom Canyon Brewing Co is situated in the center of downtown across the street from the Antlers. The building is the historic Cheyenne Building which had housed the Chicago Rock Island and Pacific Railroad in 1901.

Karen had the Hefeweizen while I had their Ginger Ale Beer. Karen's beer was very little in body and taste. My beer had little hint of ginger compared to what I had expected. The Ginger Ale beer is seasonal so get while you can.
