Landform features:Hanging Lakes is a lake above a lake creating a waterfall. The water is fed to the top lake by snow melting then going through a series of underground caves and caverns just minutes before falling into the top lake. The elevation of the top lake is 7,250ft high.

Hanging Lakes most largely populated rock type is limestone, but there is also travertine a rock made of dissolved lime stone from the Mississippian aged Leadville Formation and is deposited on rocks and logs. Travertine also is a special rock formation The land there is constantly being eroded because of all the fast moving waterfalls running down the mountain face. Eventually when all the sediment made by erosion is washed away it deposits in a small lake at the mountains end.

slide12

When I went to Hanging Lakes we did the hike up to the top. There were may beautiful waterfalls running down near the trail into a little pond at the bottom. When we got to the top the water was a green color, the waterfall was absolutely magnificent, and the dam built to hold the water in the pond was over flowing making the waterfalls near the trail. There were huge logs in the water with moss all over them. There was another log near the top of the waterfall ready to snap under the force of the waterfall. When we hiked up to the top lake there were little holes in the side of a rock face with gallons of water spewing out. That was the time I went to Hanging Lakes.
