The Aspens are beautiful at the campground, but there is much more to see while they are in full color. We decided to head over to the Aspen area and see the Maroon Bells. We have had a picture of the Bells hanging in our house for many years that my brother had taken. The site is now run by the National Park Service and our interagency pass got us in for free.
There is something about this shot I really like:
We did not have a sunny day, so no blue sky, but still impressive.
Kim and the evidence of the promise kept:
My favorite shot:
The Maroon Bell were very impressive, but we got a tip that the next canyon over was even more impressive. We headed up to Ashcroft, which is a ghost town.
This one got a “WOW”!
We then headed over to the Ruedi reservoir and the Frying Pan river. There were a bunch of fishermen enjoying the river. I did not fish, but it sure looked good. It was a long day, but it was what we came here for. The Aspens did not disappoint.
