Barr Lake

We are prepping for next year and our climb of kilimanjaro! That means, hiking, miles, feet on the move.

We decided to take a jaunt around Barr Lake

Hubby and I had done this trail on bikes, and they scared us with threats of goat heads everywhere!

We came for the miles and didn’t realize how cold it could be. It was sunny in denver, but not up there!

It was a beautiful walk, the lake was gorgeous! The only draw back was not being able to do the full circle with a pet. The far end is an animal preserve and dogs are not allowed

It took us about 4 hours, which seems silly since it’s a flat walk. We talked and enjoyed each other’s company and the quiet.

Great for mileage, great off season! Don’t go at high sun!
