Greetings Fred, Very cold water for bathing. Huge snowfields at the head of the valley. This is a beautiful location six mile back from where the cars park. It is beautiful in the autumn. I missed last year, perhaps this year I'll make it.

Greetings Mary Alice, Thanks for visiting and commenting. Yes, you need to come out and visit. There are tours that take you back in there and the drivers are very good about stopping to let you take pictures as well as tell you all sorts of interesting stories about this beautiful area.

For my next vacation, I think I'll plan to come HERE! I just wish that it wasn't so far away.

You are more than welcome for the compliments. Places like this just intrigue me. It is so beautiful and stirs the imagination so much!

If I get to opportunity, I will certainly come out that way. Of course I'll let you know if I'm coming! :)

Thanks for all the neat history and info. I sure have enjoyed it all, and especially your magnificent photos!

I spent many summers in Crystal and Aspen as a child. I love your photos of the area. I particularly like the shot showing how the road hangs on the cliffs. That was the most exciting part of traveling to "town." Your photos of Maroon Bells is spectacular. How do you have the time to travel and photograph so much? Best regards, Dan
