There is no prettier lake than Lake Quivera in Colorado's Front Range Region. Tucked high into the Rockies west of Idaho Springs, Lake Quivera and its twin, Silver Lake, hold some of the clearest water found in the St Mary's Glacier area. The lake is relatively unknown as the twin reservoirs are entirely private property and open for limited use only to area residents. Records don't reflect exactly when the reservoirs were built but this is a part of Colorado's famed gold and silver mining country.
