  Patty, enjoying the quiet - Bierstadt Lake trail was not crowded, especially compared to Bear Lake and Nymph/Dream. Bob and Dave, note Bob is carrying his snowshoes. The trail is well-packed so snowshoes are not really needed. Bierstadt Lake, looking north. Bierstadt Lake, looking east northeast Patty and Dave.

  Went "oooh, aaaah" at Bierstadt Lake, back to Bear Lake, then on to Nymph Lake. Looking down on Nymph Lake, east-ish. Looking south Kodak moment at Nymph Lake overlook. Bob at Dream Lake, 1/2 mile past Nymph Lake. 9957 feet according to Dave's GPS.

  We spent 45 seconds here at Dream Lake, enough to take 2 photos, and ran back downhill to get out of the biting cold wind. This (and the parking lot) were the only windy spots all day. About 8 miles round-trip total, both trails were well-packed and plenty of snow with no bare spots, fun day!
