Maroon Bells

Columbine enjoy the morning light near Crater Lake. After photographing the Maroon Bells at sunrise, I made my way along the 2.3 mile trail to this beautiful area. The state wildflower of Colorado, these blue blooms lined the path and spread out up on the rocky slopes. I didn’t see another soul after leaving lower Maroon Lake, and it was a nice way to spend a morning. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
