Our intern, Christina, (who is staying with us this summer) and I, made it all the way to the county line (read: 3 miles?) before conking out. Eric, the hero of this story, sucked down his favorite iced coffee and powered through the three and a half hour drive to just outside Glenwood Springs, Colorado. We arrived to the Hanging Lake Trailhead parking lot at 8:15am.
We got the third to the last parking spot. Popular place.
We found out why:
|Hanging Lake from the ledge above|
|Holy cow the water was aquamarine and totally clear.|
|Christina, Eric and I on the hike up.|
Highly recommend this! It may be my new favorite... until the next one!
