Wild Turkey at Cherry Creek Reservoir

November 17, 2016

Richard Stevens:

When returning from camping last night at Twin Cones Peaks I passed through Cherry Creek Reservoir (Arapahoe).  Visibility was almost zero, could not see the water.  A Wild-looking Turkey was in the non-electric Campgrounds.  It maybe my first Arapahoe County Wild Turkey.

Wanted to go to Aurora Reservoir; with visibility so poor, it seemed like a waste of time.  Also, sometimes in inclement weather, they close the southern gates.

Later in the afternoon, snowfall was quite heavy.  Temperatures overnight dropped to 20 degrees (after setting a record high 80 degrees on 11/17.
