Hope Lake Trail – Telluride, CO

July 2012 brought us to Hope Lake Trail, and July 2016 will hopefully bring us back. If you’ve never been to Telluride, Colorado, you have to go at some point in your life. It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen in America, and I’m from Vermont so I know pretty. A mixture of lush forest paths, rock studded landscapes and flowery hilltop meadows makes Hope Lake a picturesque trail anyone would be delighted to take a stroll on.
