Maroon Bells - 2011

* The view (but not the weather) all visitors seek, looking Southwest toward Maroon Peak from Maroon Lake. Soaked and cold from hiking in the rain and snow, we waited from 9am until after 3pm hoping the storm would lift but it never did. This memory will have to suffice until I can get back again and hopefully the sun will be shining for our next visit. I'm amazed at how much further behind the fall colors were last year as most everything was already turning amber for our trip to Snowmass this year.
