Great stuff @marlin Like you said, it's different to hike with kuds (maibly because we dont want to put her to risk nor can carry her too long) but its still great to be outside and the challenge is still there, just different.
@Bfd70 thanks. I always look forward to the day when she can actually walk with us.

Some more:

Thanks guys! @neph93  @Max Power

What really counts is, that all enjoy there time and you guys have fun together. I always have great respect for the ones who carry their baby's/small children on the back. One has to be very concentrated, especially in the mountains, where to place the feet. Things can happen so fast!

I'll recognise some familiar places.

Lago del Sorapis is stunning!

Was there a couple times chasing good light.

That water is crazy! Is it safe to swim in it or is some weird chemical creating that amazing turquoise?
Think it, be it.

Fantastic shots (as always) @marlin
I was not aware of many routes south of misurina / fanes but think i need to go there more often. Just need to avoid crowded routes if possible. Unfortunately i only can make it here once a year in summer, fall is my favourite time to hike.

@mclaincausey a lot of people swam in it. Of course its pretty cold at 2000m but the water is perfectly fine. Many alpine lakes look like this due to chalk that gives a turquoise / green hue. This ones pretty famous and easier to reach:

Thanks @Max Power, enjoy the rest of your time!

In regards of the water, it's was told to me by one who knows more about it, just like Max Power explained it. Chalk, and in some cases algae can change the color of water to that turquoise.

Great pics @marlin and @Max Power

As long as we have glaciers, there will be this great rock powder phenomenon!

Thanks @Max Power  and @marlin

We have only one chalky mountain that I'm aware of (probably many more that I'm not) in CO called Mt. Princeton, but its cliffs very sheer and difficult to summit (in fact, it's a terrible and often fatal idea to even try) and I don't think it has a lake:



There's a beautiful creek (Chalk Creek) in the region and copious hot springs and hot springs cabins. Some friends there have a geothermal greenhouse growing all kinds of crazy stuff as well as three cabins with hot spring-fed "pools" in their back yards, backing up to Chalk Creek.
Think it, be it.

Not quite the level of @marlin and some of you other adventurers but I did a hike from the cabin today with Hot Ingrid, Jesper and the in-laws. The cabin is at 60m over sea level, and the peak we arrived at is 626m. It is a relatively gentle approach followed by some fairly steep climbs either side of a plateau. It’s been a while so I found it tough going and failed to take good pics

At the start. Destination is behind the highlighted peak:



Hot Ingrid trying to look cute while fending of flies, horseflies and mozzies 



They are less of an issue above the tree line (about 400m osl). The peak is still hidden behind the one highlighted:



Bit of a break with my father-in-law. Representing the brand...

All of a sudden Rudolf showed up ten metres away and going at speed :
