Cross country road trips are something that every person should partake in a lifetime. I often use to think that all the beauty in the world could only be seenĀ  by hoping on a plane and flying to the other side of the world. I have learned in recent years that some of the most beautiful wonders and interesting achievements can be viewed right here in the good ol’ US of A!

During the drive from Washington State to Rhode Island we drove through Colorado. Colorado provided us with a fantastic view of naturally occurring wonder called Hanging Lake. Off of I-70, Glenwood Springs, Colorado has a trail that is a little over a mile long and primarily all up hill.

After making the short, but steep trek to the top…

You are met with ‘Ferngully’ like views of Hanging Lake. I would highly recommend the hike if you are ever passing through this part of Colorado.
