Beauty at 10,200 feet: Camping and fishing at Turquoise Lake
It’s 8 a.m. Wednesday morning, and there is a mad scramble going on inside my household as we put the finishing touches on the camping trailer for the upcoming trip. The sun shines bright on a clear morning, which is good, as we plan our trip. We are headed on a five-day trip to Turquoise Lake, which rests just past Leadville. At 9 a.m., we are finally ready to depart, and the adventure begins with a nearly four-hour drive, though we are rewarded with beautiful mountain and canyon scenery.
