Description

The more than 14,000 foot Maroon Bells are among the world's most photographed mountains.And with good reason. We pitched a tent in the upper campground to take advantage of morning light on these awesome peaks. People also sleep in their cars in the forest service parking lot.Each morning, at least 100 people gathered at the end of Maroon Lake in hopes of getting an iconic image. We found a short hike around a bend in the lake prove the best reflection and best image. And we had it all to ourselves.
