Due to the Federal Government shutdown, the road to Maroon Bells was closed. But that wasn't going to stop us from taking advantage of a rare opportunity to photograph the Bells with fall color and fresh snow that only started clearing out as the sun was rising. We had to hike nearly 12 miles round trip at high elevation to get this... and it was worth it!
