A Drive from Grand Lake to Twin Lakes, Colorado


The drive from Grand Lake, the west side of the Rocky Mountain National Park, to Twin Lakes, Colorado is pleasant, calm, and offers scenic views of the countryside. This 2 and  ½ hour drive, about 130 miles, is delightful with a number of roadside scenic vistas, large open fields, shimmering aspen trees, gorgeous sparking glacial lakes, amazing mountain peaks, and beautiful small towns. What else do we need to enjoy the ride!!

These pictures are from our drive on 29th September, 2019.

  6. I am proud of Colorado for creating wildlife over- and underpasses for animals. Along I-70 just west of Denver, there’s an underpass for the buffalo to use.
