Hiking Chicago Lakes
While living in Denver and being so far away from Eric is not my favorite, there are some perks—like being so close to dear old friends, and getting to go on adventures with them. Hanna and I decided to hike Chicago Lakes, which are just outside of Idaho Springs and literally right below Mt. Evans—a popular fourteener. We didn't know just how much of a hike this would be but it was a pretty great day spent putting ourselves in the way of beauty and talking about everything and nothing while accidentally hiking thirteen miles. The views were definitely worth the mileage and altitude gain.
