Cottonwood Lake

by Marsha November. 21, 2019 186 views

Cottonwood Lake in the Collegiate Range is fun to visit in any season. This area is popular with fishermen, hikers, campers, picnickers, and photographers. None of those, however, were in sight the cold day we visited earlier in November. In the winter ice fisherman might be seen trying their luck, but the lake wasn’t safe enough for that because it was only partially frozen. What I enjoyed aside from snapping shots was listening to the ice groaning and creaking across the lake as it shifted in the freezing process, kind of an eerie, uncanny sound.
