The Maroon Bells, just outside of Aspen Colorado, are one of the most photographed group of mountains in Colorado. To get there from Aspen head west on Maroon Creek Road just south of town. The short drive up Maroon Creek Drive is worth the trip alone for its beauty, especially in the fall. At the end of the road park your vehicle and take a short walk to Maroon Lake. The views of the lake and the mountains are spectacular. A sight not to be missed. There’s plenty of hiking and fishing in the area along with wildlife viewing. In past trips we have seen deer, elk, beaver, blue heron, coyote, fox and all kinds of birds. Though we have not seen a bear ourselves, you may have the opportunity to see one. In the spring and summer the wildflowers are not to be missed as they cover the sides of the trails and fields.
