After enjoying some solitude on the first part of my trip, I joined a group of adventurous friends on a weekend backpacking trip in the Maroon Bells – Snowmass Wilderness Area.

Arriving after dark the night before, we awoke to glowing aspen groves around our campsite.

The claim that the Maroon Bells are the most photographed mountain range in Colorado does not keep us from trying to capture the beauty ourselves.

Crater Lake was nearly empty – perhaps evidence of the past year’s drought throughout the region.

After setting up camp on the trail, we toasted homemade cookies over the fire.
