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.
