Glenwood Springs, CO – Lake
Hanging Lake (7,175 ft) is a 1.5 acre lake formed by a geologic fault which caused the lake bed to drop away from the valley floor above.

This is a National Natural Landmark, one of only 14 in the state of Colorado. This is a site in Glenwood Canyon near Glenwood Springs, CO.
