We went on a challenging hike at Brainard Lake, just outside of Ward, Colorado.
We took the Mitchell Lake trailhead. The hike to Mitchell Lake was pretty easy. The backstretch of the trail goes to Blue Lake, and the route is steep and rocky.
Blue Lake is a beautiful setting, a just reward for a challenging hike.
On the way back, I tripped over a root and crashed knee-first into a rock. I thought I was going to be wolf fodder, but surprisingly I was able to walk out.
If Blue Lake we’re in Kansas it would be the first wonder.
