Today’s Adventure


We decided to circle Turquoise Lake today. While doing the circle we got a few photo opportunities and stopped in to one or two of the other campgrounds we had not been to recently.

Below is an image from near the beginning of our trip. It is of Turquoise Lake from the Dam.

The next image is looking the other direction from the dam toward Mt. Elbert on the left and Mt. Massive on the right.

This is a stream which rushes down the mountains to help feed the lake

Here is a short video of the stream.

We found it very interesting that the lake is also fed by water via two tunnels. Here is the plaque honoring the individual responsible of having the foresight to get the tunnels in place.

Below is looking up toward one of the tunnels and images showing the stream rushing to the lake.

    Hi Larry and Marilyn. We did this circuit too. I fished a little at the confluence of that tunnel water and Lake Fork Creek coming from the left but didn’t have any luck. Your last photo on this page shows about where I was standing.
    We went on around to the picnic area at May Queen Campground where the lake begins and did have luck! Several Rainbow trout landed but nothing huge (11-13″. You should have seen the one that got away though! It was this long………………………………..! Sure.
    Nice to meet you both and safe travels!
    Mike and Elsa
