Hanging Lake (Colorado II)

Last week’s post was a bit of a cliff hanger, and so is Hanging Lake.

It is precariously sitting on top of a cliff, with waterfalls in the back as a bonus.

The emerald green water creates an eery play between underwater world and the reflections of the upper world behind.

What more could one wish for? Well, there is more. A very short hike up above is Spouting Rock, a single, taller waterfall that by itself is worth a visit.

Long time exposure doesn’t do it much good.

In this case, I like the dramatic spattering or the quiet drip-dropping much better.

It is a wondrous place. Remember, come early.
