September 19, 2006

We went to Lake Irwin this past weekend, a small, very secluded lake. Our intent was to see the changing colors of the aspens, but we ended up with even better memories for a little trip.

Our trip started bright and sunny in Gunnison. We stopped for brunch in Crested Butte, Erica had some steak, eggs, hashbrowns, and a vanilla hot fudge shake.

It's definitely the changing of the seasons here in Colorado You can see the aspens changing colors and snow starting to collect on the high peaks. And, as we were soon to find out, some not so high peaks.

We then headed in to the hills to see the aspen. We saw a sign for Lake Irwin and decided to investigate. It was absolutely beautiful. Not heavily developed but with a neat camping grounds area. As we headed a little further uphill we were greeted by a sight that made us think we were in the Swiss Alps.

Then while trying to get a picturesque view alittle higher still, we found ourselves being enveloped in snow showers. Our first Colorado snow! It was just so cool (Literally!).
