Maroon Bells with avalanche damage

Jul 11, 2008
Mohawk Valley, New York , USA
We recently returned from our first ever Colorado trip and of course Maroon Bells was on our bucket list ..

I had been keeping track on the road conditions and the opening had been delayed due to multiple avalanches and luckily it open just a couple days before we left ..
Several large avalanches completedly leveled several sections of trees on the way in and you can see the damage even reached the lake as trees, stumps and general debris from these slides were in the lake ... the photo does'nt due justice as the stream leading out of the lake was completely barricaded with debris ... a bit bummed on that but the snow on the mountains was fantastic.
