Hanging Lake near Glenwood Springs 2

Hanging Lake

The hike to Hanging Lake is short but steep, and the trail often gets very crowded in the summer because of its proximity to Glenwood Springs. For this photograph, I arrived well before sunrise and made the 1.2 mile and 1,000 vertical feet hike up in the dark. My lack of sleep rewarded me with a beautiful morning where I had the entire quiet pool to myself for a few brief moments. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
