Clear Creek Reservoir - Chaffee County, Colorado
Clear Creek Reservoir, CO
Clear Creek Canyon in northern Chaffee County near the town of Granite. On my visit in late April, I merely walked on the reservoir's edge and snapped photos. I noticed three people fishing on the shore and one person fished in a kayak where the lake had completely thawed. As I stood around, I could hear the crackling and crumbling of ice and snow falling into the water. :)

Temperatures are warming in Colorado, but as you can see, things take their good ol' time warming up in Colorado's high country. Above is the view facing (west) into the canyon leading to Vicksburg and Winfield.

    I noticed this section with thick ice and snow. Every few seconds I could hear the crashing or cracking of ice somewhere on the reservoir! :)

    One final shot of the reservoir. Any day is a great day for a hike in Colorado, isn't it? :)
