From Leadville we headed to Maroon Bells near Aspen, CO. The picture above is along the way there.
To get to Maroon Bells we went over Independence Pass. The picture below is also taken at the pass.
Of course this is Maroon Bells. I was there once back in the 80s when the aspen trees were bright yellow and there was a little snow on the ground. It was absolutely gorgeous. Of course, it is pretty gorgeous in the shot above.
Look at all the flowers in the picture above and below.
