Blue Lakes Trail

Fireweed fill the rocky crags above Lower Blue Lake in the San Juans not far from Ouray. The water was a beautiful turquoise on this cool morning, and the summer clouds were already starting to build up. This is one of my favorite hikes in Colorado, and it is only about 3.5 miles to this location (mostly uphill). Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
