Today was the CITEL snowshoe day. On this day, we take all of the Aussie exchange teachers here in Colorado, to Estes Park, a point higher than the the top of Mount Kosciuszko, the highest point in Australia. We put them in Snowshoes and off we go. They all make it to Nymph Lake the first lake on the trail. The hardy make it all the way to Emerald Lake, 1.8 miles and an elevation gain of almost 700 ft.
I took this on a steep part of the trail between Nymph and Dream Lakes.
