The road all the way to Mount Evans was closed for the season; but fortunately it was open to Echo Lake.
A relatively easy, but truly stunning drive up from Idaho Springs; this was a great recommendation from the staff at the Visitors Center.
The lake is beautiful; nestled in the mountains, it is ones stereotypical image of the Colorado Rockies. After spending some time appreciating the area, we continued on 103 thru Squaw Pass.
Whether a stop along the way, or a destination in of itself; Echo Lake is a must visit, if one is in the area.
