“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Pictures can't capture the beauty of the Maroon Bells. Took the hard, but worth it, hike to Crater Lake. This is a must do hike, as the view is astounding. Take the time to visit this amazing place.

“Majestic!”

My partner and I camped 3 nights at the Silver Queen campground and day hiked this beautiful area. Colorado's most scenic area, indeed!

“Hiking and Picture op”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Best mountain picture of peaks called The Bells, reflected in the lake. Easy hikes around the lake or graduated hikes up to another lake and beyond.

“Walk into this calendar picture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

It was surreal. The beauty of this peaceful place is overwhelming. It is worth a trip from anywhere. I visited in September as the Aspen trees hit their peak golden color. I highly recommend a hike in the area to get away from all the other picture taking tourists. Listen to the Aspen tree leaves rustle in the wind in the woods -- you will enjoy it.

“Breath-taking views !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This specatcular site, a short 8 -mile drive from downtown Aspen, did not dissapoint. The views are Postcard-worthy, with two huge snow-caped mountains centered between two pine-covered valleys slopping down to a spectacular lake, where the mountains reflect in all their splendor. The drive itself is gorgeous, up the Aspen Highlands, with may aspen trees turning gold among snow-covered ground, and fabulous Mountain homes,for a perfect Fall day. Well worth seeing !!!!
