Photographers dream of capturing the two peaks (aka "the Bells") framed by trees and replicated in Maroon Lake
. Some prefer to trace the view from every angle as they walk the mile-long perimeter of Maroon Lake
, especially during the fall, when the trees brighten with golden colors.
Colorado's most photographed landscape is even better in living color, when the distinctive symmetry of snow-dusted Maroon and North Maroon Peaks are framed by a ribbon of aspens, all reflected on shimmering Maroon Lake
. Of course you won't be alone, but still it's worth the crowds.
