Family Photos on the Poudre River Trail Bridge

BridgeFall in Fort Collins, CO is one of the most beautiful times of year.  Leaves are changing color, the temperature is dropping, and the air is crisp with anticipation of snowfall.  In my opinion, the landscape is absolutely stunning!

Like many of our friends in Fort Collins, the changing seasons also means that it’s time to take our family photos for our holiday cards.  There are so many options for family photos – parks, Old Town, Colorado State University campus, pumpkin patches – you name it.  But this year our photographer Ryan Levander of Colorado2 Photography introduced us to the west bridge on the Poudre River Trail.

If you haven’t been on this bridge yet, it’s time to see it!  Walk, run, or bike your way over it and enjoy the amazing architecture and the colorful scenery around you.  Take Overland Trail north toward Laporte to Lions Park Open Space just past Bingham Hill Road.  The bridge is on the east side of Overland Trail.

If you are taking pictures, I would suggest going during sunrise or sunset because the shadows of the bridge cast many shadows throughout the day.  And even if you aren’t in it for the photos, go for the experience, hold someone’s hand, and enjoy it.
