Hiking – Summit County’s Boulder Lake

My favorite part of Summit County – and the reason I love living here – are the hiking trails.  From easy walks in the woods, to an incline that gets your heart pumping, to the all-day destination hikes, I love them all.  I wish my schedule allowed for more all-day hikes, but I squeeze in as many 1/2 day hikes as I can.

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful morning hike to Boulder Lake which is just north of Silverthorne.  Quite frankly, the toughest part of the hike was the drive to the trailhead – but once there, you are treated to a wonderful trail full of wildflowers, views, the devastation of pine beetle, but the hope of the new growth under the dead trees, cute little streams of water, and finally, yes – Boulder Lake.

Enjoy these pictures from my hike – and feel free to call or email me for hiking ideas.
