Beautiful place and what I feel is a "must do." I've gone multiple times and am still as excited as the first trip.

Anyone visiting Colorado should put this on the top of their must-do list.

At Echo Lake or Summit Lake, fish for a bit or walk the trails. Then take Hwy 5 to the top of Mt. Evans. Marvel... More

Want a nice hike and breath taking views? Look no father! I took so many pictures and they all look amazing. I can't wait to get them framed. Also, the hiking lets you burn some calories! Double win. :)

Do some research before you hit the road, since it's not fully opened after memorial day, still depends on the weather. if you love purely white world and solitude, I guess be here right after memorial day is the right season. they didn't even got the chance to plow all road. but really quite and less traffic.
