Sunrise on the Trail to Cathedral Lake 1

Cathedral Lake Trail

After climbing several switchbacks, I paused to look back on the trail to Cathedral Lake in the Maroon Bells Wilderness. This image shows the moment the sun breaks over the distant mountains and brings a start to the day. This path leads up higher, eventually connecting with the Electric Pass Trail that takes you to a commanding view of the Elk Range, including several 13ers and 14ers such as North and South Maroon Peak and Pyramid Peak.
