We spent the morning at Chipeta Lake walking the trail and taking in nature’s beauty. Along the way we saw geese, ducks, oriels, pan fish, a beaver, and two snakes. We waded into the water and caught some crayfish–but the one that got away–it was as big as my hand!

We started the morning at Denny’s for breakfast and some studies: counting money, spelling, verbs/nouns; second grade stuff.

Lake Chipeta is named for Chipeta a native American woman who was a multi-talented person in her own right, but also famous for advocating for Native rights. We are proud of her.

Her grave is located across the street at the Ute Museum.
