Here are 8 notes from my diary when planning to visit the Maroon Bells in Colorado

The best time to visit the Maroon Bells is from late August to mid-October.

They’re located about 12 miles southwest of Aspen, Colorado

THE BELLS ARE AMONG THE MOST-PHOTOGRAPHED MOUNTAINS IN NORTH AMERICA

THE MAROON BELLS RISE 14,000 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL

It’s wise to plan your trip well ahead of time to secure your spot at the lake

venture deeper into the wilderness by hiking more than 30 miles of trails that lead off from Maroon Lake. 

There are abundant wildlife-viewing opportunities around the Bells, so keep your eyes peeled for mule deer, mountain lions, elk, black bears and other local creatures.

Some of the Best Hiking I have ever been on! 

These mountains are a must-see for anyone interested in nature tourism
