Photos from Arthur's Rock Trail - Lory State Park, Colorado

These are photos I took while hiking up to Arthur's Rock in Lory State Park (near Fort Collins, Colorado) while filming the video "Arthur’s Rock (Lory State Park – Part 2) – In A Colorado Minute (Week 206)" for my weekly 1-minute Moving Postcard web series, which you can watch HERE, where you can also read more about the park and the trail.
