Photographers Hanging Out in Hanging Lake (Colorado Rocky Mountains)
Since both my friend and I are avid photographers, it took us a little longer to do the hike than it probably would most people because with the flowing river, canyon walls and wildlife running about, the photo-ops were abundant, and we took advantage of every single one.
We passed people ranging from athletes running up the one mile ascent to a cluster of nuns on a casual climb.
The reward of climbing up through the canyon was when it broke out into the breathtaking view of Hanging Lake. One can't help but pause and take in the unexpected waterfalls and the pristine lake reflecting the sky, canyons and trees above. Who would think that at the top of a canyon sits this magical place? I never would have.
