Shade of Autumn by iphelps Shade of Autumn by iphelps
One of the most iconic landscapes in the world, the Maroon Bells draw hundreds of thousands of visitors annually. Along with sightseers, the fourteen thousand foot summits of Maroon and North Maroon peaks entice climbers from around the world. However, these are not your typical rocky mountains. Instead of the granite and limestone that comprises the majority of the mountains in the Rockies, the Maroon Bells are composed of mudstone, a weak sedimentary rock. This same mudstone that gives the Bells their maroon color, creates particularly unstable and treacherous slopes that have claimed the lives of several climbers, earning these peaks the moniker, “The Deadly Bells.”

On this serene autumn morning, passing clouds create a sublime scene producing incredible contrast and a stunning, mirror-like reflection of the Maroon Bells in Maroon Lake.

The Maroon Bells – Snowmass Wilderness Area, Colorado
