A Birthday Trek
Thursday, May 08, 2014
This is Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon, Colorado. I wanted to load more photos, but it's taking forever on SparkPeople, so settled for just one. I had photos of the ice/snow fields we had to cross, the 18 to 24 inch boulders we had to climb and the steepness of the trail. Also had some shots of Spouting Rock just above Hanging Lake and Rifle Falls, a few miles from here, you can actually hike to the top and get BEHIND Rifle falls--honestly how cool is that?!
Anyway, this is what we did for my birthday. It was awesome and challenging. The trail up to the falls is pretty rugged and really steep. But oh my was it worth the trek! Since it's early spring and the run off has just started the falls were truly impressive. We had a beautiful, warm sunny day, perfect for a hike.
So, what do you like doing on your birthday?
