If you're the type that enjoys getting up close and personal, you'll enjoy a leisurely drive along the South Platte River. Following Highway 24 west about 40-50 minutes from the Colorado Springs you'll pass through the community of Lake George in Park County. Turn right onto Tarryall Road. Take another right onto County Road 112. You'll find yourself following the river up close and personal with some great photo opportunities. Camp sites are also available along the river.
