Colorado Black and White Images - West Maroon Pass Panorama from the Top

Add to Lightbox Download
This Colorado landscape black and white image was captured between Crested Butte and Aspen. West Maroon Pass is a great hike for Colorado landscapes and wildflowers. I drove down Gothic Road from Crested Butte in the dark in order to hike early before the afternoon storms rolled in. The previous day I had hiked up Red Cloud and Sunshine Peaks, two of Colorado's 14ers, and by the time I was close to my car, the rains came, so I didn't want to be in that position again.<br />

The walk to this point is beautiful, and the wildflowers along the trail are quite colorful. In the distance, you can see the peaks of the Maroon Bells, another two of Colorado's iconic 14,000 feet mountains. This Colorado image - a panorama - was taken in mid-July in the morning hours.
