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.

Hiking Down to the Black Lake 

Yesterday I went up to the Black Lake. Had lunch and then decided to go up to the Frozen Lake. It’s like probably another couple thousand feet in altitude gain. On the way back you get this fabulous view of Black Lake right under you. Check my short video descending down to it
