We spend a lot of time at Bidwell Park, it's giant, filled with trees, streams and tons of bike paths. It's always a busy place but it's so big you feel like you're in the middle of the woods rather than the middle of Chico. The place we go within Bidwell the most often is called 5 mile, which is a wonderful little picnic area that's hidden away next to a the creek.

I love how magical the park is every moment of the day, with the streams flowing softly, the wind rustling through the trees, and the way the light shines through the leaves different times of the day and season. The Park is always changing but in a natural way that's calming and peaceful. Sometimes, if the others allow me, we hop off the bikes, wander off the path and I get to take pictures, and sometimes Salena gets a few pictures of me taking pictures.
In the summer time the Park also offers tons of places to swim, we got to go once or twice before it got too cold, it's really fun. The park is so big, you can choose an almost private spot to swim with you friends, I say almost because it is a public park but we love meeting new people so we don't mind. I'll be sure to take pictures when summer rolls around again.
