Another hike to another lake and let me tell you, it doesn’t get old. We enjoy hiking pretty much anywhere but there is just something special about hiking to a lake that’s in the mountains, no matter how small or massive it is. They are all amazing to see.
We ventured over to Frisco for this short hike to Rainbow Lake. The only time we have spent in Frisco is at the tubing hill in the winter, when we need to pick up dog food or when we are going to Dillon Reservoir. We needed to pick up dog food this day but we thought we would also fit in a short hike.
We were feeling surprisngly good after our hike to McCullough Gulch and both kids were up for a hike so I found a short one that I knew we could strecth out for a couple of hours.
It was a fun hike with a creek running along the trail, surrounded by aspens. I can only imagine how gorgeous this hike would be in the fall. I plan on trying to get back out when we are here in October so that we can see the brilliant colors of those aspens.
After about 3/4 of a mile we arrived at Rainbow Lake. There were only a few other people and it was so quiet for being close to town.
We had a snack, Gray fished with his homemade fishing pole, we found some balance beams and we watched the ducks eat their lunch.
We hung out for a bit, I had to prove my kids wrong that I could actually balance and “do something tricky” and then we started to head back because we were all getting hungry and the baked wings at Eric’s were calling my name and the arcade games were calling the kids.
I love that we have been able to see so many parts of Breckenridge this trip. I know there is SO much that we have not seen but we wanted to make sure to be outside as much as we could and I would say that we have accomplished that.
