The inspiring Aspens at Sylvan Lake, Colorado

15 Feb

A few years ago, we took a road trip to Colorado.  As we drove west out of Denver into the Rocky Mountains, with no real destination in mind, we ended the day at the little town of Eagle to spend the night.  As we toured the area the next morning, we discovered a state park named Sylvan Lake south of town.  It was amazing with a crystal clear mountain lake and  Aspens lining the nearby foot hills.

It was so inspiring, I created this painting of my visit to Sylvan Lake, Colorado.
