Hanging Lake - Glenwood Springs

We surprised the kids this weekend (the first weekend of our "Discover how much Colorado rocks" summer) with a trip to one of the state's classic hikes - Hanging Lake... just east of Glendwood Springs.

Most of the steep path (3-mi roundtrip) was covered in snow. And most hikers had soaking wet butts on the way down.

The most exposed part of the hike... protected by an old handrail.

Timed self-portrait. I might have gotten closer to the family group, but I might have also slipped under the rail in my haste and fallen to a cold, rocky death.

The reward at the end - Hanging Lake. Amazing. The picture can't do it justice. A 1-acre alpine lake with crystal clear water, trout, and limestone waterfalls.

Sprouting Rock is a short side-hike... a waterfall right out of the side of a cliff.
