Maroon Bells Wilderness And Aspen Images And Prints
The Maroon Bells, two of Colorado's 14,000 foot mountains, are the most photographed mountains in the state. These two summits dominate the skyline from the shores of both Maroon Lake and Crater Lake. Close to the quaint and glamorous town of Aspen, the Maroon Bells Wilderness Area is home to some fantastic hikes and breathtaking views. Moose frequent the lake area, and for those souls brave enough to test the crumbling rock of Maroon Bells, two Class 4 peaks await.
In the spring around Maroon Lake, wildflowers fill the meadows. In the fall when the aspen turn gold, photographers and tourists line the edges of the lake to take in one of the best scenes in the state as first sunlight each morning turns the peaks of the Bells a bright orange.
Included in this gallery are also areas within a short drive of of Aspen, including the Crystal River (home of the iconic Crystal Mill) and Rifle Falls, just west of Glenwood Springs, and Hanging Lake, just east of Glenwood springs.
I hope you enjoy these images from the Maroon Bells and surrounding area. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
