I've wanted to hike to Blanca lake for a while, obsessively stalking the hashtag on instagram seeing everyones photos of the ice blue glacier-fed lake. So for my birthday Jordan and I made the trek, a 3,000 foot gain in 3 miles, switch back after switchback. Then a 600 foot muddy decent to the lake. It was a tough hike for me but so worth it! My new life goal is to get in shape enough to backpack to the lake and camp there!
Jordan snapped this pic while I was trying to make sure I wasn't going to fall, and I like the way it turned out better than the cheesy smile I had in the one that followed. :)

Jordan and i were trying to make serious faces, like we weren't impressed, but we just couldn't help smiling!
