Reflection of Maroon Bells – Colorado

Landscape Photography

The Rocky Mountains offer many breathtaking and picturesque places, and one of them is The Maroon Bells scenic area, located in Marron-Bells Wilderness Area in the Elk Mountains. The Maroon Bells are two peaks, The Marron Peak and North Marron Peak, towering above the glacial valley. They are among six fourteeners found in the Elk Mountains reaching elevations of 14,156 and 14,014 feet, respectively, and become natural landmarks of the range. We took this picture from the beginning of the Maroon-Snowmass trail to capture their reflections in Maroon Lake early in the morning. We were lucky that there was snowfall at night before our visit and surprised, considering it was in August.
