Hiking in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains With a Dog

27July, 2022

For this video, Robby, Thomas, and Sierra head to the Rio Grande National Forest to see Willow Lake in the Sangre de Cristo Wilderness. The trail starts just outside the town of Crestone and heads up to Willow Lake which is about five miles in. We camped just before Willow Lake and briefly entertained the idea of climbing up to a 14er called Challenger Point. There are also other 14ers in the area including Kit Carson, Columbia Point, and Obstruction Peak. We ultimately gave up on the idea and headed back down after checking out Willow Lake. When we arrived back in the town of Crestone, there was a 4th of July Independence Day parade going on, which was a surreal and fun end to the hike.
