Hiked up to Hanging Lake today with Tom, Arianna, and Mallory. Weather was perfect: 70 in GWS, no clouds, just a deep blue Colorado sky. Took us 70 minutes to get to the lake where we were greeted by two very friendly Stellar Jays and an American Dipper. Played around the waterfalls, watched the trout, just enjoyed an unbelievable almost-November day!
Took us about an hour to hike down to the car. On the way back to GWS we parked at the Hot Springs and walked back east on the bike trail next to I-70 to get up-close and personal with a herd of Bighorn Sheep. Awesome!
