Family camping on Lake Ellis

We spent a magical weekend camping and  fishing on Lake Ellis in blissful solitude – not another soul around and no phone signal! We had beautiful sunny days and clear chilly nights.  A tiny snowfall early on our last morning was a gentle reminder that we were camping at over 10,000 feet.

We drove through various vegetation zones including forests of bamboo and Hagenia.

Our campsite was spectacular. We  soon had ourselves all set up and ready to fish.
