When the Grizzly Creek Fire started over 2 weeks ago near Glenwood Springs and Gypsum one place came to mind... Hanging Lake.
A favorite among Coloradans.
At one point Hanging Lake was in the path of the fire and crews had no idea if Hanging Lake was damaged.
Luckily crews were able to asses and found no damage done to Hanging Lake. Although, some damage did occur at the beginning of the trail.
The trail does remain closed for the time being but the beautiful landscape remains.
Thank you to our firefighters working hard to contain the multiple wildfires burning in Colorado.
