(On My Mountain Bike At Cottonwood Lake And South Cottonwood Canyon, Near Buena Vista) - August 29, 2006

Cottonwood Lake, Colorado Cottonwood Lake is located is approximately nine miles west of Buena Vista and is popular for fishing, lake kayaking, camping, picnicing and other activities. This morning, I brought my mountain bike to the lake and peddled a couple of miles uphill into South Cottonwood Canyon (locals call it "Spring Canyon"). It was a beautiful morning and here are my best photos. :)
