The Maroon Bells

Back in 1997 my Mom and I went to Aspen, Colorado during spring break. During this trip we ventured over to the Maroon Bells, a beautiful set of 14,000 foot peaks.

The valley had just been opened up after being cleared of avalanche danger. To get there at this time of year required snowmobiles, since the snow over the road was still several feet deep. Mom and I spent all morning there in the valley with just the mountains, snow, and hot chocolate provided by the little shack at the end of the road. It was a pristine and beautiful morning, and I will not forget being there.
