Take Maroon Creek Road at the roundabout on the west side of Aspen, about 6 miles to the Welcome Station then another 6 to parking.
Check on bus times if you are here in summer or fall before the end of Sept as there are restrictions on driving your own vehicle during those months.
Early morning after a night of light snow on the mountains. What a grand view. My first time and had heard to expect a crowd and there was one. Glad I got there early.
