I wanted to take a few days out of my summer to escape the every day stresses and recharge my batteries, so took I a friend out to Colorado and visited my cousin. Well I ended up completely exhausted by the end of the trip but it was worth every moment.

Hanging Lake, Glenwood CO

hanging lake in hdr A hike that was 1.2 miles over a completely unpaved trail with rocks the size of beach balls, oh and I forgot, over that 1.2 mile hike there was 1,000 foot elevation rise, oh and add 25lbs of camera gear too. Worth every moment.

Sunrise from Mt. Evans, overlooking Denver CO
