This is a short and easy hike to a high mountain lake near Cottonwood Pass west of Buena Vista, Colorado.  The trail was still fairly wet and sloppy.  The lake was still partially frozen and there was a small island in the middle of it like in the Beyond the Wall episode of Game of Thrones.  We scrambled around the lake for a bit before returning our vehicle for the long drive back to Denver, Colorado.  We even saw two moose on the drive home.
