Emerald Lake

We are back to rainy day here in the front range, but yesterday was spectacular in the high country.

I made to the Emerald Lake overlook, which you can see right below, with couple folks (that little dot right in the middle of the lake) who just came down from the slopes above.

You might be able to spot Mills Lake to the upper left and of course the star of this show is Longs Peak, peaking out from the clouds.

Sky Pond

Is always dramatic. Took this photo a few weeks ago. Ice was perfect for ice skating, but I didn’t bring it as it was very windy and cold. Need to try over the next couple weeks.

Loch Valle Winter Paradise

Standing right in the middle of the lake, this little island is only accessible in the winter with solid thick ice under the feet.

And the View is Awesome!

Finally, managed to climb up to the summit of the mountain you have seen a few posts back. Now you can see the lakes that have no name from high up. While pictures can never repeat the in-person experience, I think it shows it darn well, how pretty it all.

What are your weekend plans? I’m contemplating on hiking a 14er or two. Perhaps I see you on the trail!

Alpine lakes that have no name. Unless you know where they are, you don’t ever know where they are. Lets keep it this way.
