Ptarmigan Lake Trail is 12.8 miles up Cottonwood Pass from Buena Vista.

Ptarmigan Lake Trail is normally a 6 mile in and out #Hike   With snow levels being around waist deep in spots, once I cross the #Creek and climbed to the top a ridge in the sun for a half mile of very little snow.  Once I past the two lower pothole lakes the trail comes and goes, in and out of the snow.
As I waded through the snow I couldn’t help but notice how breath taking the scenery was in every direction.
Once up to Ptarmigan Lake the snow disappeared to the beginnings of #Alpine #Flowers    The lake was still frozen but ought to be open in the next couple of weeks.  The hike down was about as rough as going up for a bit.  I actually got stuck up to my waist and had to have a little help to get out.
This is a Photo Trail of the Trail In.
I met a great group of women hikers that forged a great trail through the snow.   Make time to do this hike.   These photos on the #Trail now are taken with a #Samsung #Note
