Dennis Weaver – “Ridgway’s Best Kept Secret”

JoAnne Morgan

On our days off (Tues & Wed), we have been visiting local sites. One of these was the beautiful and interesting “Dennis Weaver Memorial Park” - many of you may remember him from “Gunsmoke,” “Gentle Ben,” or McCloud.”

The park is nestled along the Uncompahgre River, with the San Juan Mountains as a backdrop. For us it was a place of quiet, and serenity.

A trail runs from Ridgway State Park all the way to the town of Ridgway, where along the way either walking or biking, you can stop and see the magnificent eagle, and visit the Memorial.

The PHOTOS don’t give you “the feeling” of being there – but I do hope they help you to get a good overview of the park. Maybe next time you are in the area, you will make a short detour.
