Here are a few photos from a hike with my friend and co-author Lee Tillotson to Lost Lake above Eldora, Colorado.

This is one of the hikes we may include in a new book on history of our area around Nederland, Colorado. The lake itself is a worthy destination, but add in the history you can find as you explore the old mine sites, the hike becomes an adventure for your imagination too. Read more about this hike in Afoot & Afield: Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, and Rocky Mountain National Park (184 Spectacular Outings in the Colorado Rockies), which I co-authored with Alan Apt.
