Inter-laken Historic Site on Twin Lakes, CO

We are ready to hike to Historic Inter-laken Resort directly across the lake from our camp site.

Yikes! What an awesomely beautiful day! Enjoying the amazing reflections of  La Plata Peak, Mt Elbert and Mt Massive.

And the aspen grove along the shore.

This is the lodge that was moved 150 feet before the dam enlarged the glacial lake.

Dexter’s Cabin was lived in until 1950 and has been partially restored.

This is a 6 person privy from 1890 – we did not open a door!

We followed the trail to some other buildings in the resort.

The log detail of this stable structure was quite interesting – some very tall trees were felled for this structure.

Back on the trail, we will head to that grassy knoll for lunch.

Nice to share this spot with our full time RV friends, who came over from their camp near Aspen for the day.

We relaxed and looked back on our camp site on the hill across the lake.
