Eldorado Canyon State Park
Eldorado Canyon State Park in Eldorado Springs is a very rustic location with white water and big boulders. It is perfect for portrait photo shoots, especially for seniors. There is a really rustic bridge, some trees, and a cave for darker portraits. If you climb a little up, you have amazing backdrops to your portraits. This location is great to combine with South Mesa Trailhead, which is only 1 mile down the road. The two parks have very a very different feel and light, so worth combining.
If your photo shoot is scheduled here, meet me in the parking lot of the park, in front of the restrooms. Entrance to the park is $8 per car.
