• The main #trail off of the #EastPortal #trailhead is the #SouthBoulderCreekTrail. After hiking the #ForestLakesTrail, I came back the following year for a hike to #HeartLake. As I mentioned before, this trailhead is like a choose your own adventure. There are five different destinations that either branch off into their own trail or are along this trail. Heart Lake is along this trail.

    The #waterfall here was within eye distance of the main trail where it branches off to #CraterLakes. Of course Nietzsche and I took a little breather here, before we continued on our way. Much of the trail is thickly tree lined, so you bask in the scenery whenever it rears its head.

  • Just before I made it to the first of four or five #ForestLakes, I came across this beautiful #waterfall. The trail pretty much follows this stream from the #SouthBoulderCreek to the Forest Lakes. Just about all trails in the #mountains follow streams, because they take the path of least resistance.

    The water flows year around most years and is 100% fed by the #glaciers that persist all year at these altitudes. The #creeks and #lakes are all loaded with #trout and it's a wonder how they all get there.

    While I don't live in the #mountains yet, that's where my heart is. I spend a lot of time visiting them and will always come back. I always feel #free when on the move, even on a #roadtrip, but never as free as when I'm alone on the #trail where it's just me, the mountains and the wind.

  • Let me introduce my bestfriend Nietzsche. He's a Doberman/Small Terrier mix and is 14 years old. While his high #mountain #trekking days are over, he has a few more good years in him. He's been by my side since he was 12 weeks old and has seen and experienced more in his life than many humans.

    These shots were taken during two different #adventures along the #SouthBoulderCreekTrail near #Rollinsville, #Colorado.
