Hanging Lake Morning 1
The waters of Hanging Lake are the color of emeralds and clear enough where you can sit and watch the trout swim by. This iconic Colorado waterfall is just east of Glenwood Springs and makes for a good, though relatively short, hike. Covering just over a mile in 1,000 vertical feet, the ascent is steep, but the payoff is one of the state's most beautiful areas. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
