PHOTOS: Frozen waterfalls and startlingly beautiful waters make up Hanging Lake in the winter

We sent a reporter and photographer to Hanging Lake in Glenwood Springs to capture what a quiet winter hike is like on the trail, which is known for massive crowds in the summer. The hike is a steep one of 1.2 miles with an elevation gain in excess of 1,000 feet. The lake, photographed on March 5, is a beautiful aquamarine color with gorgeous waterfalls surrounded by stunning cliffs.

Check out details on the hike on The Know Outdoors. Follow us on Instagram for more outdoor photography.
