A Few More Maroon Bells Notes

As we hiked through the valley at the Maroon Bells, we heard voices on the slope above us.

A zoom lens shows the hikers standing where (we assume) an avalanche had made a clearing of crushed rock.

Check out these big evergreens.

I think it is a fir; the cones were blue, blue.

This stump reminded me of a unicorn or a goat or a turkey head.

Our trail followed the stream for a ways.

Close the center at the  top of the picture  below, you can see the snow in the crevice on the mountainside that may well be the source of the stream.

Put Maroon Bells on your life list to see for yourself!
