Sapphire Point

After leaving Loveland Pass, we headed to nearby Sapphire Point. This spot always looks fabulous with fresh snow! Luckily, there was still plenty of it on the trees although some of the ground was bare. We walked on the short trail that loops around a fire scarred hill. The new trees that have been planted in the revegetation area are doing quite well! The surface of Lake Dillon, visible down below from many points along the trail, is still mostly frozen. Due to the weather, we unfortunately weren’t able to see Breck in the distance.
