I’m loving how eco-friendly Colorado is.
So, our plan was to hike 4.5 miles to Ypsilon Lake, eat lunch there, and hike back. I sort of ruined all of the fun when the altitude hit me full force. I had about 10 hours to adjust, which was actually spent sleeping before we went on this hike. I thought I was going to pass out!
Another interesting fact is that there were thousands of dead trees. Apparently there is/was a beetle infestation, which wiped out a lot of the trees at Estes.
