Beginner's Backpacking at Diamond Lake
When it starts to swelter in Boulder, go high to the diamond in the sky. Diamond Lake, that is. Only 3.5 miles hike takes one to this lovely lake in the Indian Peaks Wilderness where we'll fish, play games, and explore. Participants should have no recent history of anemia or altitude sickness.
