Wildflowers above Cathedral Lake 1

Electric Pass, Maroon Bells Wilderness

On the downslope from Electric Pass (13,500'), these Colorado wildflowers bloomed just above Cathedral Lake in the Maroon Bells Wilderness area. Located in the Elk Mountain range, Electric Pass climbs to a small notch in the towering rocks above and provides amazing views of some of Colorado's most beautiful peaks, including North Maroon and South Maroon Peak - both 14,000' summits.

While most folks don't push onto Electric Pass, Cathedral Lake (seen here) offers a great destination to take in a high mountain lake with an impressive backdrop of rock and snow. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
