Cathedral Lake

Another beautiful sunny day so we decided to hike to Cathedral Lake. This stunning alpine lake is about 11 miles up Castle Creek road just past the ghost town of Ashcroft. The hike is about 3 miles each way and fairly steep in places. It took us almost exactly four hours including a lunch break by the lake. I had only hiked here in the fall before so the waterfalls on the way were a nice surprise. The wildflowers were gorgeous and there were so many different types. Different colours of Columbines and Indian Paintbrush also…

 

 

 

 

 

About Bronwyn

Hi. I moved to the Aspen area from Australia in 1997 and have a daughter born right here in Aspen in 2000. I teach skiing (for the past eighteen seasons) and am a Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Völkers Roaring Fork.. I love to ski, snowboard, horse-ride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
