Steamboat Lake Up Close...

Rick Morgan

September 3, 2008

We woke to frost and 30 degree temps. Brrrrrr…

It is very sad to see the destruction the Mountain Pine Beetle has done, and is doing to our forests. On our hike around Steamboat Lake today, when you see the dead, and dying, and soon to be infected trees up close, it is devastating. Still beauty in the mountains abounds. The lake was glistening! The summer foliage colors fading, and autumn colors emerging, it made for some serene and soothing sites. We stopped at a bench on the trail, enjoyed our gourmet PBJ sandwiches, and took it all in.
