Up to the Black Lake

Had to take advantage of holiday and do some fresh snow backyard adventure. Managed to get all the way to the Black Lake in #rockymountainnationalpark and quick stop at the end of the day at Dream Lake. By the end it got so cold (7F according to my car) that layer under the windbreaker was white frosty frozen when I took it off before getting in the car.

You might notice that I’m standing knee deep in fresh powder. Post Mills Lake snowshoes were must to have. All lakes are now fully covered in snow, 4-10 inches at least.

Windy Sunset

Very windy at the ridge while exposed to the west, all those 20+ miles/hour today winds in Indian Peaks could be felt at Sanitas, especially at some exposed spots on the Lion’s Lair. As soon as you get on the east side, it’s like there is no wind at all. Boulder is very protected from the west.

Not Too Bad

Unpromissing sunset did turn out a few sparks, just for a few minutes. Always nice to have little reward in the middle of the hike. My hike #9 up to Mount Sanitas.

Another Sunset

Five days no hiking and finally getting out, feels so good!

The Creek

Had a chance to enjoy this view a few months ago on a hike in San Juan Mountains. Tippy toeing on some rocks in that creek to get the right angle is always fun part 😎 nothing got wet.

Weekend is almost here, time for some outdoor activities!!!
