Skywatch

The signature feature of Eagle Park in Dillon is this bronze eagle sculpture. The park is at a main intersection and serves as a trailhead for the recreational path around the lake. When enlarged, golden aspens can be seen by the buildings.More Skywatch views on the sidebar.

Hiya Carol,
Just noticed it was bronze.
What an amazing line you chose to have it enhance your point of view.
Nobody could be that lucky and have a live one pose just there while you were just there :-)
