Last weekend, Molly, our 8 year-old lab mix, and I hiked to Nolan Lake south of Fulford outside of Eagle, Colorado. The lake sits about 11,250 ft.
This is a little early to make this hike but with the low snow winter we had the trail was nearly free of snow. We made it to the lake in a little over an hour but we pushed hard.
The lake was spectacular and views down valley beautiful. I highly recommend this hike to anyone wanting to make a relatively moderate hike to a high alpine lake.
Kim and I participated in the Vail Valley Annual Highway Clean-up day last Saturday. What a great way to spend the morning. We joined the Prudential crew at mile market 156 just west of the Wolcott exit.
It was also a beautiful day. You really never know what you are going to find. Very few treasures but lots of bottles, cans, auto parts, and some unmentionables.
There is a party afterward where everyone shows off their most interesting finds. We came in second this year with our discovery you can see in the photo below.
It was a fun day spent with some great folks.
