I was delighted to cross over a ridge into Colorado and see green grass everywhere. I have been living in the desert for 10 months. I was even happier to see that the campground I’m staying at is along side Fountain Creek. Unfortunately there is no path down to the creek. Once it stops raining I’ll have to explore options to access to the creek.
Fountain Creek is a stream that originates in Woodland Park in Teller County and flows through El Paso County to its confluence with the Arkansas River near Pueblo in Pueblo County, Colorado. The 74.5-mile-long creek, once known as the Fontaine qui Bouille, is a tributary of the Arkansas River.
