Welcome to Sky Pond, a location I have wanted to get into for a while now. I doubt many of you have seen any photos from here, or believe that this is in fact a high alpine lake tucked here in the Rockies. Despite the beauty of this location, the 10 mile round trip hike with 3000 foot elevation gain tends to scare a lot of photographers away. We started our hike in at 3am in order to make it up to the lake by sunrise, and at one point literally had to hike up a steep waterfall section in the dark. A beautiful lake and one of the many beautiful locations here in Colorado.
