Last week we hiked to Herman Lake via Herman Gulch just off I-70 south of Loveland.  This is definitely one of my new favorite hikes!  3.25 miles through dense forest, alpine meadows, ultimately ending at Herman Lake, an insanely picturesque alpine lake at 12,018′.  If you’ve never seen an alpine lake in person, I highly recommend adding it to your bucket list.  There’s nothing quite like it and as beautiful as the photos may be, seeing it with your own eyes is an entirely different experience.  For now, here’s some photos to inspire you!
