Columbine Lake

One week out from Pikes and I had zero running miles on tap for the weekend. Instead Scott & I took our oldest daughters on their first (of hopefully many) backpacking trips.

It was just one night in the Indian Peaks Wilderness at Columbine Lake. We hiked three miles in with about 1000' of elevation. Not a bad climb for two seven year olds! And not bad for the two dads carrying 50+ lb packs!

This pristine lake sits right below the Divide and is surrounded by wildflowers, live pine trees, and interesting rock formations.

So for this weekend, running was gladly put on the shelf and a wonderful experience with our girls was had.
