If you are in the Monument, Colorado area take a short five minute drive over the
highway bridge to Palmer Lake. This
small community is situated off Interstate 25, in the foothills of the Rocky
Mountains in El Paso County. Quite a few farms and ranches straddled the El Paso/Douglas
County line as early as 1860 and Palmer Lake became one of three communities in
the Tri-Lakes region between Denver and Colorado Springs. It is a paradise all
year round for hikers, cyclists, snowshoe enthusiasts and fishermen. Despite its undersized population of 2,400
people, the town offers a vibrant picture of community spirit and
activity. There are a number of
fantastic eateries, pubs and unique shops on the main street as well as a very
nice selection of hotels in the immediate area.
If you happen to
be visiting Palmer Lake during the month of December you’ll be able to see a
beautiful five-pointed star that has been erected on the top of Sundance
Mountain which has been part of the neighbourhood landscape since 1934. The
construction of this enormous star was a community effort and it is now
maintained by the Palmer Lake Fire Department.
