Columbine Sunrise at the Maroon Bells 1

Crater Lake in the Maroon Bells Wilderness

On a beautiful summer morning at the Maroon Bells Wilderness, columbine sit quietly as the sun begins to rise of the aspen-filled ridge. This Colorado landscape was taken near Crater Lake, a short 2 mile walk from Maroon Lake. In July and August, columbine often fill these rocky slopes and bring color to the forest and trails.
