Hanging Lake

Glenwood Springs, CO, United States
13 Kudos
If you are ever in Denver, I highly suggested taking a 2.5 hours trip west to Glenwood Springs and visit the popular attraction call Hanging Lake. The place is so amazing and beautiful, these picture does no justice. But before being able to see this gorgeous fall, one must hike through a 1.5 miles hike which does not seem bad but it is all rock and dirt trail, also very steep as it is located 7k feet above sea level. It took us about 2 hours to hike each way, it was very tiring, once at top, we stayed for half a day before hiking down.
