Snowshoeing to Jewel Lake 

Today we had fantastic day at the Rocky Mountain National Park. Got up early, drove up to the Glacier Gorge parking lot and did 6.6 miles loop in snowy wilderness. Thst parking is a good one to start hiking for Black Lake or Mills Lake if you are not up to extra few miles of more difficult terrain. Jewel Lake is right next to the Mills Lake, so it’s no brainer to hit it before turning back. 

It was super windy there, but fresh snow and blue skies made it much more enjoyable.

I took this one somewhere maybe three quarters of the way to Mills Lake, while we were still protected by the trees. 

I’ll be posting a few short video clips to my Instagram, so follow me up there as well.
