This lake sits at 12,830 feet – and there is a road to it! In fact, the road continues to the top of Mount Evans in the distance at 14,264 making it the highest paved road in North America. Unfortunately it is closed beyond Summit Lake after the Labor Day weekend.
When I was hiking around, the elevation really wasn’t noticeable – but at one point I realized my battery was going to die, so I ran back to the truck for another one, and wow – that air is thin!
My super model slept in this morning, so you get stuck with a rare photo of me today!
