The water was like glass so the reflectioons in the water were stunning!
We found a little area where they had been clearing firewood, so we made a small campfire and roasted hotdogs and marshmallows for lunch. Then we headed up the trailhead to Mt. Elbert. I just loved this area of Aspens, it's one of the few pics of me!! We heard water and found some run off water heading down the mountain, it was loud. So we had to stop for the family pic!
We did not make it up Mt Elbert, but we did go for a van ride up to Indepence pass for another photo op. Pluse we picked up ideas for future trips. OK enough CO pics, thanks for looking!
