    Easy to moderate hike, but very busy trail so took a little longer than anticipated. Beautiful views and even saw a moose on the way up. Beautiful sunny September day, majority of the hike was warm, but it was extremely windy up at Blue Lake which made it very chilly and I was glad I brought a couple thin layers and a ski hat to keep me warm up there.

Mitchell Lake and Blue Lake (7/18/19)
Kara’s first Colorado hike! Left home at 5:45, was on trail by 7:30. The ice glacier was nuts, couldn’t find the water fall after we crossed it.
