Today is our rest or “zero” day in Twin Lakes. I was not familiar with Twin Lakes, CO before this trip. Twin Lakes is about 20 south of Leadville, CO at the base of Mt. Elbert and an elevation of 9200 feet. It has a population of about 200 people.
We are staying at a bed and breakfast called Ores&Mine which is a really interesting place with lots of history. There is a large rock collection, a doll collection, a coca-cola collection, and a room built around a rock. Each room is named after a local mine. I highly recommend it for a unique and different experience.
