Photo Essay: Hiking To Upper Boulder Lake In Breckenridge, Colorado

In Breckenridge, Colorado, there are myriad Rocky Mountain hikes to experience. After doing numerous ones myself, one of my favorites is the trek to Upper Boulder Lake. This moderate hike is about six miles each way, with a combination of uphill climbs, and downhill slopes. The altitude takes you to about 11,000 feet, so make sure to take your time, enjoy the scenery and drink lots of water. You’ll be rewarded at the end of the journey with a colorful lake and forest view that looks like something Bob Ross would have painted (shown above). All photos below were taken using an iPhone 4S. No editing was done. Enjoy the following photo-centric Colorado travel guide!
