Sunday Adventure: The Diamond Lake Trail

There are some fantastic trails just outside of Denver, Colorado.  Specifically, there are gorgeous trails just outside of Nederland, CO.  On Sunday I hiked the Diamond Lake Trail with my girlfriend.  This 6-mile out and back hike took us through shaded pines, waterfalls, and to a picturesque alpine lake.  The season is changing here, and the green forest was splotched with yellows and oranges.  We even saw a massive bull moose in the middle of the trail.  We kept our distance and could not snap a picture, but is was definitely the highlight of the day.
