Thursday's photo trip to Brainard Lake to shoot moose made me want to come back for a hike. So did the three-day pass I had to purchase to get in. I tried to take the family up to Lake Isabelle two years ago, but between rain, Taryn literally blowing completely out of one of her sneakers and then lightning in the area we never reached our destination. So Saturday I figured it was time for Taryn and me to finally finish what we'd started.
Instagram, which I can certainly appreciate.
Zak doing the same thing on our hike to Chicago Lakes almost exactly three years earlier. Neat to have similar experiences with each of them.
So with the extra walk from the day use lot our four-mile hike turned into about 5.5 miles instead. Couple that with the wait to get in and we left the park about three hours later than I'd expected. But it's not like I can think of a better way to spend a Colorado summer day!
