American Lake

Is it really three years since I hiked to American Lake? That’s crazy!!! I think last time I posted I said it is 11 miles out of Aspen but actually I think it is only about 8 miles up Castle Creek road on the right. This time it started raining right after we got to the lake and so we made the round trip from the trailhead a little faster! 3 hours instead of 3.5 🙂

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!
