Fox Run Regional Park is just north of Colorado Springs in the Black Forest area. It used to be part of the Black Forest Fur Farm in the 1930's and 1940's when white-faced silver foxes were raised here for their valuable fur.
The fur farm has long since been out of business and this beautiful park now occupies part of the land. There are several ponds and a gazebo that is often used for weddings.
Little creeks join the ponds. It was hard photographing the babbling brooks because my daughter kept jumping into the picture to play in the water.
This pond was well stocked with large orange koi, which look like gigantic goldfish. We also spotted a couple of turtles and other smaller fish. I could have stayed there all day but a storm was moving in over the mountains and once again we made it back to the truck just as the clouds opened up. With record temperatures being set across the country, we have been very fortunate to have this moisture. There have already been 2 major wildfires in Colorado's forests, hopefully this will lower the threat.
