Garden of Lights

There's nothing quite as special during the Christmas holiday season as driving around looking at lights. We thought about driving down south of Denver to an arboretum to see a light display, but decided instead to check out a local display at the Gardens on Spring Creek here in Fort Collins. We were not disappointed! Trees, fences, and buildings were strung with brightly colored lights and multiple free-standing light sculptures filled in the gaps.There were stalks of corn, a patch of pumpkins, a row of grape vines, and gardens of flowers - all cleverly crafted and lit up with hundreds of lights.

Jiminy Cricket even made an appearance!

After walking around the garden, we went to a little shop for hot chocolate. As if the lights and cocoa weren't enough treats for one evening, Bryan reached into his back pocket and presented us with a flask of Yukon Jack! Great fun close to home.
