This was my birthday trip and I froze my tushie off! I believe I ended up sleeping in my car by 2 a.m.
Everything else though was fabulous. Anyone can be a professional photographer at Maroon Bells. The mountain is sitting there in all her glory just waiting for you to snap a picture.
The best part about going in November was the lack of people. Notice there are no people in my picture. In the summertime, it is extremely crowded.
The hike to the lake is not hard at all.
