Photos from a hike at Herman Gulch, Colorado in September, 2018. This was a trail with plenty of beautiful scenery of mountain peaks, dense forest, open meadows, long views, creeks, and a lake. Though there was plenty of forest around, the trail was mostly exposed. It was not busy and fall was a great time of year to be there. Part of this trail is shared with the Continental Divide trail. Herman Lake is at the top, the presumed destination of this trail. However, there's lots to explore beyond the lake, including the base of Pettingell Peak.
