We took a walk along frozen Dillon Lake on a sunny day.
The ski runs at Keystone Mountain are visible across the lake.
The water stays frigid all year round.
People boat on the lake but swimming is prohibited.
Several mountain peaks over 13,000' present a stunning backdrop.
Low snow pack and warm temperatures have exposed much of the ground around the lake.
Since 9/11, the perimeter of the dam on Dillon Lake is guarded and restricted.
The lake is the largest reservoir of water for the city of Denver.
If the dam is damaged or destroyed, the town of Dillon would be submerged.
The orange barrels prevent boaters from coming too close.
When the weather warms and snow melts, the popular recreation path around the lake is busy with bikers and runners.
On this day, we had it all to ourselves as we enjoyed the blue Colorado sky.
