Hiking from Grand Lake Lodge


Grand Lake Lodge in Grand Lake, Colorado has an absolutely stunning view of the lake.  After checking in on Thursday, my girlfriend Gina and I decided to take a hike down the hillside to the town to check it out.   Here’s the beginning of the trail and that’s Gina up ahead…

We were delighted it wasn’t raining having left the flooding in Estes Park earlier that morning!  The path forks off to the left but is not well-marked.

I continued to take photographs as we descended the hillside.  Because the path wasn’t clearly marked, we were traversing a rock and small shrub terrain for a portion of the hike.

We passed a couple of beautiful homes on the hike…

I love the log cabin look…

Next, we’ll enter the quaint town of Grand Lake and meet some new friends!

  3. Hi! I just stumbled upon your blog and I really like what I see here. I also like hiking and using my camera to capture the beauty that I see around me. I drove across Colorado two months ago on my way to Los Angeles and I loved that state! It reminded me some of the landscapes we have in Europe 🙂

  4. Just got back from Colorado a couple of weeks ago – my son (stationed at Fort Carson) took me on a hike up to Hanging Lake – next time out you should do that – beautiful sites at the end of a 1.2 mile hike with a 1000 foot elevation gain. We stopped at Grand Lake – beautiful place – looks like a great place to stay and play.
