Mud Lake and Aspens

Some lakes deserve to be called muddy. Maybe the six other Mud Lakes in Colorado warrant this derogatory name, but Mud Lake in Boulder County doesn’t.

Nevertheless I’m glad that somebody changed its name from Muskee Lake. The new name encourages most people to bypass it and go up the road a bit to the Caribou Ranch Open Space trailhead, so our Mud Lake is never crowded.

Sharon and I enjoy both the lake and the ranch. But after coming from Mitchell Lake we just wanted to see the aspens turning yellow and orange at Mud Lake. The aspens turn in the fall, starting at the higher elevations, and Mud Lake is at 8,400 feet in the foothills of the Rockies. We we didn’t see any mud, but we did find colorful aspens.‚Äč
