A Quick Trip to Brainard Lake

Some of our dearest and oldest friends were in town this past week from Florida, and we decided to go exploring.

 

We were able to carve out one complete day to head up in to the mountains and do some exploring. We decided on Brainard lake which is absolutely beautiful and, because of the huge amount of late season snow we got, not crowded at all. Many of the trails were still snow packed and we all ended up with shoes full of snow, but it was a still a blast. It was also beautiful! I want to make little trips like this happen more this year. The mountains are good for my soul. It is like a reset.
