Twin Lakes from Mount Elbert
We took a side trail to climb Mount Elbert, and were treated to a wonderful view of Twin Lakes. Mount Elbert is the highest point in Colorado at 14,440 feet, and the second highest point in the continental US. We woke up at 5 AM to start the climb, and there were already dozens of people on their way up. It was our first 14er, and gave us some humbling perspective on altitude.
