Little Ruby Lake

by wil — Oct 10, 2010

My wife and I recently drove up to Creede, CO and camped out a couple of nights at Little Ruby Lake.

The hike’s a bit rough (3,000′ over 3.5 miles, 9,200′ – 11,200′), but the autumnal leaves definitely added to the experience. So instead of just sweating and staring at our feet, we sweated, stared at our feet, and occasionally glanced up to admire the view.
