Lost Lake Hike 1

This was my first hike of the 2011 summer season and we hiked to the Lost Lake in the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area. Although the hike was as fabulous as could be, the photos aren't so great. The day was very overcast and kind of dominated by bright gray skies which loomed overhead early in the day. Then by afternoon it was sprinkling and finally just plain raining on my parade! I think we will try to go back later in the summer, when we don't have to hike through snow fields and rivers of water. It was still quite an experience, as the snow pack in the Colorado Rocky Mountains this year was at 260 per cent of normal, which is causing an amazing run off and raging rivers where only tiny streams usually exsist. More of this hike to follow in the next couple of days.

Rain drops on the camera lens. Sorry!

      When I saw "Hike 3", I knew I had to go back to the first one! I don't know which I prefer - the still water or the rushing water. I like the florals, but I love the old house! On to Hike 2...

      WOO HOO! Your first hike this year. It's a beautiful set. Don't worry about the rain on the lens- it happens. I need to go camping!
