I recently spent a bit of time in Colorado. The friends I were with knew I liked water…so we went in search of water.
Here is a frozen lake, and in the distance, a dam. We were walking on the frozen lake, which even though I knew was frozen solid and that we were at 9,000ft still was a bit scary.
An ice fishing hole! Seeing how deep the fishing hole had to been helped diminish my hesitancy in walking on the lake.
Word of advice: if visiting Manitou Springs in the dead of winter, many things may be closed.
