On Mother’s Day morning, my mom and I woke up earlier than the rest of my family so we could go to Maroon Bells in Aspen and be back for Isaac’s Lacrosse game. Maroon Bells was very pretty, I loved the red rocks around it and the mountains behind it. It made a very pretty picture! But it was also very windy, so we didn’t really hike. We just walked out to the water, took lots of pictures, and came back to the car because I was freezing. Then we drove back and went to Isaac’s lacrosse game.
After Isaac’s lacrosse game ( by the way they won!) My family and I went on a hike to Hanging lake when we were driving home on Mothers Day. It was a very beautiful hike and a lot of fun. There was a lot of water all along the hike because of snowmelt. It was about 2.5 miles round trip but it sort of felt like longer. There were lots of bridges throughout the hike, and the water was so pretty. Towards the top of the hike it got very steep and very high up.
Then we finally reached Hanging Lake. There was also a huge, beautiful waterfall that was falling into the lake. I took some pictures of a cute little chipmunk! When we were coming back down, Gabe and I ran and arrived there before my parents and Isaac so we Penny boarded around the parking lot while we waited. It was a lot of fun!
