This is the direct opposite view of the Maroon Bells. It was probably around 7:45 am when we started hiking. Some bushes and leaves were thinly frosted. The areas that received the sun’s ray first had dew droplets on them. It was very magical and peaceful.
Fly fisherman and paparazzis! Kidding.
These Aspen trees stood gracefully tall and proud.
This was a lake but it was completely dried up.
That lake was so clear you could see everything in it.
Kida’s picking cotton (she wanted to make a dress with it) and Kylie, she just didn’t want to turn around for a pose but did anyway frowning all the way.
Some serious photographers here.
This was the view they were facing.
Kylie started picking cotton too.
Kida couldn’t pick enough for a dress so she started collecting Aspen leaves.
When we came down from our 20 minute hike (I got scared of lions, tigers, and bears, oh my!) the photographers were still there and there were even more than before. It’s hard to see in the photos but they were all lined along the lake.
Hope you enjoyed all the photos!
