Land of the Lost Lakes

Flat Tops Wilderness, Colorado // Our first day of packing in the Flat Tops was a long and grueling haul: our 15-year-old map didn't bother to accurately depict mileage so we ended up walking much farther than we expected, not arriving at our destination lake until nearly sunset. The next morning, thought, it all became worth it. The sun's first rays cut a distinctive line across the cliffs, which themselves towered 700 feet above the marshy plain next to the lake. It all felt mysterious and magical as the light showered slowly down across the valley.
