Maroon Valley Dawn

Postby yorksman » Sun Oct 20, 2013 9:02 am

October 19, 2013 - Dawn on the Maroon valley. What it took to get this shot.....well let's see...... getting up just before 3am, 3 miles of hiking for 3,600ft vertical gain, temperatures in the low teens, all in 3"-12" of fresh powder snow. No headlamp required all done under a full moon. © 2013 Jody Grigg

Awesome shot! You hiked up Aspen Highlands? Up to the ridge? Thats a tough hike to beat sunrise like that. Nice.

Beautiful. But I can't see the Bells reflected in the lake. :wink:
