Colorado

Our last spring break led us to explore parts of Colorado. I was hoping to see some of the blue alpine lakes I had seen in so many pictures, but early April proved to be a-less-than-ideal time of year for high-country Colorado alpine lakes.  Most high elevation lakes were frozen over in a crisp translucent white sheet, the roads leading to it known for being narrow, winding and icy, and our sea-level bodies would not fare very well walking in snow, cold temperatures and high elevation. Given all those reasons, we opted for the shorter, easier hikes that were somewhat easy to get to in Colorado Springs and Boulder, in addition to the ones in Rocky Mountain National Park.
