|Lake Granby, CO|
We were hiking around beautiful Monarch Lake in Grand County, enjoying all the summer sights and sounds you come to expect near a mountain lake. We watched for birds and deer, and a couple hikers we met along the way even warned us of a recent moose and calf sighting just up the trail.

If you go:
Stillwater campground is located 6 miles south of Grand Lake, CO, and sites can be reserved on recreation.gov. The campground is built on a hill, so some sites are terraced with separate levels for tent pad, picnic table, and parking. The main drawback about Stillwater campground is that, like many in the area, the pine trees have been cut down because of the pine beetle infestation. So, shade is hard to come by, but it also means that many sites have unobstructed, spectacular views of the Lake.
There are a couple small grocery stores located in Grand Lake for food and supplies, and a large, modern, supermarket can be found about 10 miles south of the campground in Granby, CO.
