Hanging Lake

 This Colorado photograph depicts the iconic Hanging Lake. The lake and nearby water features comprise of  beautiful cascading waterfalls  that spill into a crystal clear body of water. Hanging Lake is a truly unique place that you would expect to find high in a canyon near Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The small lake is an oasis of turquoise colored water and home to an ecosystem that includes a variety of rare flowers and fish. The mossy rock under the waterfalls are home to a rare species of bird called the black swifts. Trout are also abundant in the small body of water.
