Did you know that Grand Lake is Colorado’s largest and deepest natural lake, and part of the headwaters of the Colorado River situated at the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park? Imagine hiking trails leading to the sights and sounds of beautiful waterfalls or fishing in meadow streams through the reflection of the Rockies. Can you smell the fresh mountain air and feel it on your skin?

So breathe deep and make your plans to hike it, boat it, fish it, photograph it, snowmobile it, cross-country ski it, snowshoe it, be it, and live it!
Anthony Melchiorri of the Travel Channel’s words sum it up best: “I will go on record saying it’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been,” he said. “I was blown away. Grand Lake is a piece of art. Every single time you turn around there is either frozen lake with a beautiful cloud over it, or there’s a part of the lake that’s not frozen with a sun over it, or there’s a mountain by itself or a formation of mountains. I’ve not seen the same landscape since I’ve been here. And then you take this beautiful town of Grand Lake that looks like the back lot of a Hollywood studio and you incorporate that with just beautiful open-hearted people that know each other – it’s my favorite place, and it is the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. And I thought Alaska and Hawaii would be tops, and this surprised me.” From Sky-Hi News article by Tonya Bina.
