Golden Gate Canyon Cabins

This February seven friends and I  rented two cabins and a yurt at Golden Gate Canyon State Park, in Golden Colorado.  This is a really cool state park with tons of good hiking, and not to many people.  We decided to book the cabins to get in some winter camping with out the freezing cold nights.  They are actually really nice cabins.  They have electricity, a gas fire place, bunk beds, and plenty of room.

You can find out more information and reserve the cabins at the state park webiste

We arrived around noon on Saturday.  We decided to do a three mile loop near the cabins.  The trail had just the wrong ammount of snow.  There were long bare spots which made snow shoes impractical. There was also pretty deep drifts.

After we got back to the cabin we got a good camp fire going, and heated some chili in the crock pot.

Sunday Morning I got up at dawn and went to near by panorama point to get some sunrise pictures.  It was chili but beautiful.   We were hoping to get in some sledding, but due to the poor snow conditions we decided to take another short hike and call it a trip.

Over all I would highly recommend an overnight trip to this wonderful state park.

Here are some pictures of our adventure
