A Day of Hiking: Aspen, CO #dayone

This week we are in the beautiful Aspen, Colorado; which means you better watch out for never ending Insta posts of mountainous views and incredible hikes! We're staying at a ranch in Basalt which is about 20 minutes out of Aspen, but with just as picturesque views. The first day, we hiked the American Lake Trail and let me tell you, if it didn't open up to an insanely gorgeous lake at the top, it would not have been worth it. It took an hour and a half JUST to hike up. We packed some sandwiches we got from the Grateful Deli in town and ate by the lake and the carbs were definitely well deserved!! The whole thing took about 4 hours, so let's just say getting out of bed the next morning was a struggle, lol! But enough talking, I'll let the video speak for itself.
