Twin Lakes, Colorado

Twins Lakes Mountain and Lake

Introduction note: I am going to try pretty hard not to get lapped chronologically on my blog posts. I am currently in June of 2017… and it is currently June of 2018… so get ready for some PHOTOGRAPHS!

Before June 2017, I had been to Twin Lakes before, briefly. When I visited Kristen in May of 2015, we drove along 70 to Glenwood Springs and hiked Hanging Lake!!!(why haven’t I posted about this yet?)!!! The next day we went down to Aspen, and on our way back out of the mountains, we drove through Twin Lakes. But it was mainly that, we just drove through.

So in June of 2017, we decided to go camping in Twin Lakes and wake up early to finally see Maroon Bells! This all came about after our beloved family friends, the Brown girls, took a trip to Colorado!!!! We obviously had to visit them in their mountain town.  So, Twin Lakes- I couldn’t possibly pick my favorite part of Colorado, but Twin Lakes is definitely in my… top 5 spots in the state. It’s pure magic.

Twins Lakes though. It’s a town right next to two actual lakes, surrounded by insane mountains.

After we explored the lake and threw rocks around and went into the teeny town, we went to our campsite. Everything was just beautiful.
