From Glenwood Springs, Colorado, take Highway 83 south to Aspen. At the roundabout, as you enter Aspen, make a right following the signs to the Maroon Bells. Just before you reach the parking lot at the Maroon Bells, look off into the meadow on your left. This beautiful pond is waiting.
With nearly all of the fall hordes of photographers lined up along the lake at base of the Maroon Bells, the rest of the wilderness is left to the more adventurous. I found this beautiful little pond because I was exploring. It was pure luck that it is within sight of the paved highway and is easy to walk to.
