Hanging Lake falls
Hanging Lake, east of Glenwood Springs. Bring a water bottle for each person. Head up the trail right after lunch at the latest to come down before it's getting dark. When you reach the top you'll see falls that drop into a turqoise lake that is clear enough to see the fish swimming in it. If you walk behind the falls you'll find the larger fall that drops into them. We refilled our water bottle in it. ---Beautiful! This was taken in August, so in the spring the falls should be more powerful.
