Enjoy the sights and sounds of the South Platte River, just West of Denver, Colorado.

Here are a few photos of what you’ll see in the YouTube video above.

This section of the South Platte River is easy to reach from Denver and is well worth the time to visit.

I used my GoPro Hero 8 Black for all the videos and photos taken along the river.

  1. I love being with nature, but nowadays I have to be content with seeing photos of nature online. Can’t wait to be able to travel again, but for now, I thank you for leaving me somewhat sated.

    Do you know if there is any simple accommodation nearby in which I can stay a few nights and just meditate?

    • The South Platte River flows all the way from Lake George through Denver and of course there are a lot of places to stay in the greater Denver area. I do know there are several places to stay around Conifer and Evergreen, which are higher in the mountains west of Denver that may be what you’re looking for, but I can’t be sure of that as this is an area I don’t have much knowledge of.

  2. Thanks for this information on the South Platte River. The land and vegetation around this river, play the illumination from the sunlight gives this river an outstanding beauty. The rays of the sun falling on the river creates an amazing work of art which in my opinion would be great to photograph.

    • I agree, but what’s even better, is the North Fork of the South Platte River, which I did not video, is even more impressive, with a lot more rapids and small waterfalls. The North Fork is just north of the South Platte River and flows in near Bailey, Colorado. This will be my next river to video.
