Most People Will Never See This Gorgeous Lake Hiding In Colorado

You could spend a lifetime hiking Colorado’s trails and still not see them all. Of course, not all trails are suitable for all hikers – here’s a trail that takes you high up into the Sangre De Cristo mountains to a hidden lake. This trail difficult, and because of its steep, treacherous terrain, many Coloradans will never see this pretty lake.
