#TravelTuesday Evergreen Lake

Last year my wife and I took a short trip to Aspen, Colorado. To avoid a monumental change in altitude it was suggested to me that we might want to spend a night in Denver and allow our bodies to get acclimated more gradually. The spot we chose was the little town of Evergreen. Bear Creek rambles its way through the small rustic town, winding its way beneath narrow bridges and around the setting of our hotel. Following the stream upwards leads to Evergreen Lake. Evergreen grew as a town in the late 1800’s and was primarily a lumber producing village. At its height of growth back then it boasted 200 residents and six saw mills. Now the lake is used mainly for recreational purposes.

The evening we were there became cloudy and overcast, but for about fifteen minutes the Sun tried desperately to break through and light up the sky. It created this interesting sight in the sky.
