Securing a location on the lake at Maroon Bells is critical before sunrise. It was a brisk, cool morning on the lake and the wind had been blowing just before dawn. As the sun came up and began to reveal itself on the peaks, the water calmed and an amazing reflection could be seen! Note to self, however, never leave coffee mug in the car! I wasn't about to relinquish my spot on the shore to go back for my coffee!
