Our first full day in Colorado, the fam decided to get in a little tune up before we attempted to do a 14er. By a little tuneup I mean a 7 mile hike... We headed to the Mohawk Lake Trail. Julie had hiked it before and really enjoyed it.
The hike was well worth it. Got us a little acclimated to the altitude and their was some pretty good scenery. This was the lowest lake, about 12,000 feet, and this is where we stopped. There was at least one more lake above this but it was still frozen.
There were some amazing waterfalls and a lot of old mining equipment still laying around.
All in all it was a great start to the trip and we had a really good time!
