Maroon Bells, Colorado's Aspen-Snowmass Wilderness
September 28, 2014
A snowstorm powdered the Maroon Bells over the late evening of September 28, 2014. I had not planned to make the dawn shoot after returning to Aspen from a weekend Denver wedding. But as I was awakened at 3:30 am to wet downtown streets, I checked the weather satellite to find a winter storm. I decided to make the ride out to the lake. In the moonless night, I could see that the bells were brighter than the surrounding horizon suggesting snow cover from the parking area.
My original choice of setting up over a pond closer to the mountain was marked with recent Bear warnings. In the raw darkness and alone, this stopped my progress, and I sat down on a nearby bench. Soon I noticed a headlamp bouncing my way along the edge of Maroon Lake. For the next two hours, a new friend and I chatted. What a beautiful morning!
