BEAUTIFUL !!! Take a canoe out or a paddle boat. Pyramid lake is calm and has great Mountain views to take in.

Went at night during the Winter. Moon was bright, and even without flash, you can clearly take a picture of the whole lake and mountain background. You walk across the bridge and you can keep going on the island and take a walk on the Frozen Lake. Beautiful and Safe.

The Rocky Mountains have so many beautiful lakes and every one is unique!! The appeal of these two is that they are so close to town and easy to access. With beautiful views and the ability to walk over the bridge and onto the island in the middle of the lake they are especially worth a visit!! We even braved... More

Since snowshoeing was out, we decided to head out to Patricia and Pyramid Lakes. It was an overcast day, but the weather started to break overhead, so we began to get some sun and interesting skies. Patricia Lake was ice-free, as you'll see in the photos, and I got some nice shots of the lake with Pyramid Mountain in the... More
