Maroon Bells Morning Moonset 1

Maroon Bells Wilderness

From one of my favorite places and times in Colorado, this is Maroon Lake just before sunrise. In the distance, the majestic Maroon Peaks - Maroon and North Maroon, both 14,000’ peaks - rise in the distance. The nearly full moon falls as daylight begins to light up this serene and iconic Rocky Mountain landscape. Soon, tourists will fill the shorelines of this lake, but for now, all is quiet and peaceful. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
