I have lived in Colorado a long time and had never done the famous Hanging Lake hike. Finally, we made it happen. We were told to get there early because the parking lot was said to fill up quickly. So we left early from Junction and still ended up getting the last spot in the lot. After reaching the pool of water (aka the hanging lake/yes it was very unimpressive). We hiked back through the rain to the car. I enjoyed all the weather that we got on the hike and the boys did really well considering there were tons of people on the trail.
