... loving it!!
Before it started to get dark, we headed to Glenwood Canyons which was so pretty to drive through….we ended up staying in a rest area for Hanging Lake which is where we planned to start our day on Thursday. We had read you weren’t allowed to camp out but it was open and signed as a rest area so we did it!!

short, but steep, 2 mile hike that took us a little ways down into the canyon
and provided some jaw-dropping views (see pictures below). On the climb back
