A hike up to Gem Lake

Its been a great few days off the grind stone from working but the new job has started today 5/5/2014 This was on last weeks adventure to Gem Lake near Estes Park. I've been here quite a few times and the views are great from the trail along the way.
Looks like a hole in a boot to me.

This is Gem Lake 1.7 miles to the top with great views weekends are busy. Luckily this was a Wednesday and it was quite.
This is one of my many favorite places to climb too. I've showed only a handful of people that are good friends. Hike anyone?
This was an extremely fun place to set up a hammock and a sun shade. These hammocks are great for any place you can find a place to tie to. These boulders proved to be a win even on top of a mountain.
