Plans are changing. We got the "Oh, Mercy NO" response when I asked if we should hike to Hanging Lake. It seems that you have to be very skilled and that strapping two toddlers to you is advised against. Something to look forward to in future visits. From Kansas! It won't be long.
So, instead of our morning hike, we're switching gears and hitting the World Famous Hot Springs Pool instead. (Pictured above) Amazing!!!! And, something that shouldn't be missed.
We had originally planned on bypassing this venue due to the high cost and us already dropping $150 on our day today. Plus, Blake and I both figured we'd get there and spend $75 getting in, only to have the babies melt down and us have to go an hour after arriving. That's an expensive swim! Looks like off season rates are a bit more affordable, so we're going to give it a shot.
Afterwards, we hope to hike Maroon Bells near Aspen. It's one of the most photographed locations in the United States. Located in both the White River and Gunnison National Forests.
Details here. A lady I spoke with said it's even lovelier than Hanging Lake and a much easier destination! Hoping both accounts are true.
8:40pm currently. Blake is out with the boys getting ice cream. We have a quiet room for Lainey to sleep and Lord, she needed it. That sweet baby girl can turn into a little stinker when she's tired.
Have a great night!
