More Colorado Postcards :)

Last Thursday we went to the beautiful Brainard Lake, but unfortunately didn’t make it to the trail recommended by our friends. Today was the second attempt. We didn’t make it all the way to the Blue Lake again, and for the same reason- not enough time. But today was an amazing day nonetheless. We went about halfway to the park and noticed menacing black clouds, silly me didn’t even think about checking the weather.  The clouds were moving overhead all the while and not a single drop! isn’t it lucky?:)

On the way to the lake, in the very beginning of our trip we saw people photographing a moose in the creek, we were hoping to get to see one too and lo! a hoofprint

all the colors!

And what a gift, such luck! A whole family of moose dining right across the stream. It is our first time seeing these animals in the wild and it made our week, if not month

a moose!

The trip back was an amazing treat of gold gold gold everywhere

We had a wonderful trip today, so many lovely memories, and as always, recharged in nature.
