Last week was family vacation time, and we spent the week exploring some hiking trails and other points of interest in Colorado. I'm working through some of my images from the trip and thought I would share a few with you from our hike up to Gem Lake. This is a relatively short hike of about 3.4 miles round trip. The trailhead is just a few minutes outside of Estes Park, so it is a convenient location and a beautiful place.
Before leaving on our trip, we found out that some friends of ours (hello Urbans!) were going to be in Estes at the same time as us. We decided to meet up and do this hike together, and everyone had a great time.
Here are a few of my favorite images. Please click on the image to see it larger.
