Camping at Willow Lakes to end the summer (photo slideshow)

Willow Lakes west of Silverthorne in the high-elevation valley of the Gore Range had its last official summer weekend with a dusting of snow and leaves dropping from aspen trees. Approximately 6 miles into the Eagles Nest Wilderness from the Willowbrook trailhead — as long you don’t take the wrong turn with the poorly labeled trail signs — it can be remote for out-of-state tourists with an abundance of trout to fish in the lakes.
