Another Stretch of the Arkansas River Conduit

Last December I mentioned hiking along the old Arkansas River Conduit west of Pueblo. Today I learned that there actually is an official Conduit Trail, with signage. Never knew that.

Part of the trail follows the old watercourse behind the retaining wall in the photo and continues through the cut beyond.

I was looking to get away from the mud and ice up here in the foothills. There was no ice down there—but still plenty of mud. So it was not a real long walk.
