Between Mesa Verde NP and the San Juan River we were over heated and not loving the hot weather. We decided to go to a nice high elevation mountain lake and just sit and fish. It was the best decision we made the whole trip. Haviland Lake is only a few miles north of Durango and a great place to just chillax. Even though it was another hot and sunny day, having out by the cold lake water felt so refreshing. We didn’t catch any fish today, but that was because we were still trying to figure out the best place to fish around the lake. The best part were the two osprey hunting and fishing on the lake.
