Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs.

The Riverwalk in Pueblo (Part 2)

More from our afternoon at the Riverwalk in Pueblo on Sunday. They are thinking of doing a similar thing here in Colorado Springs, with Monument Creek downtown. I had actually dreamed up the same concept many years ago, long before the Pueblo Riverwalk came into being (and I'm sure I'm not the only one who's come up with it), and lately when the city government seriously started discussing the idea, I really pondered whether it would be a good thing or not. I've concluded it would be a real benefit, even though there may be some environmental disruptions for the wildlife that live in and along Monument Creek -- but I think the problems would be minor and could be worked around. I hope the idea grows legs and becomes a great public space for everyone to enjoy. I think Pueblo is lucky to have the Riverwalk and it'd be pretty cool if we had something similar here.
The Riverwalk is lined with public art, like this sculpture of Canada geese, almost every step of the way.
This is the spot where the Riverwalk ends and the Arkansas reverts back to its natural state.
