Lost Man Lake, Independence Pass 719-1

Lost Man Lake Trail near Aspen, Colorado

From Lost Man Pass, this landscape looks down at Lost Man Lake, an easy hike from Highway 82 just west of Aspen, Colorado. The trailhead starts high up on Independence Pass, takes you by Independence Lake, and up to the pass, then back down to this lake - all in a stunning alpine setting. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
