Photographer's Note

Of all the things I associate with Colorado, the view up by the hanging lake is not one of them. To me this looks like a place on a paradise island or at least much closer to the Equator. It's a relatively short but steep hike up to this lake. My father (71 at the time) tore up the trail and had to wait for me on more than one occasion. I live at high elevation, he at sea level. I was not in really good shape, but I think my father was born in great shape as he still is more active than most are even in their 20's.
