Buckhorn Lakes

San Juan Mountains

Last week we decided to head up into the mountains to do some exploring. We’d been in Colorado for a few weeks and hadn’t been out to play in the mountains—something is clearly wrong! After taking care of some business in the morning, we were getting a bit of a late start so we chose to explore towards Storm King.

As we headed up Buckhorn Road, our views of the mountains just kept getting better. It was also really fun to look back across the valley towards our place on Log Hill Mesa.

We weren’t expecting to get to nearly the end of the road and find a sign welcoming us to Buckhorn Lakes park but what a welcome surprise. Sprocket was beside himself to have a nice mountain lake to swim in!

It was awesome to get that first adventure under our belts. We’re looking forward to exploring a lot more this summer!
