State Forest State Park Full Moon Open House & Potluck
GOULD, Colo. - The snow-covered, winter woods beckon again at State Forest State Park's first of two "Full Moon" events for 2013 on Saturday, Jan. 26 starting at dusk. Snowshoe or cross country ski the six-mile Gould Loop that starts outside the Moose Visitor Center. The route is studded with glow sticks to guide skiers and snowshoers. Everyone gets their "glow on" with glow-in-the-dark jewelry. Hot chocolate and cookies will be provided along the trail at the Chocolate Cabin and everyone is invited to bring food for the potluck at the Moose Visitor Center.
The second "Full Moon" event will be Saturday, Feb. 23.
The Full Moon Open House provides a break from cabin fever and an opportunity to discover the magic of moonlight on snow and maybe even a moose. Temperatures drop when the sun sets, so be sure to bundle up.
