Stunning Maroon Bells Summer Family Pictures Near Aspen

July 12, 2022

Family in Aspen Colorado Maroon Bells Mountain Photos

Maroon Bells is said to be the most photographed mountain range in Colorado. It’s easy to believe this because the views there at Maroon Lake are absolutely stunning. They do require a parking reservation these days due to the popularity so you need to plan ahead if you want to visit, but it’s so worth the extra step. The family featured on the journal today was planning a whirlwind scenic Colorado trip and visiting some stunning areas of this beautiful state. But, the view they most wanted photos in front of was Maroon Bells and I’m so glad we were able to make it happen!  It was a bit chilly that evening so their poor girls were a little chilly in their cute white outfits, but overall they managed to hang on long enough to catch all of the gorgeous photos below. These are just a small amount of some of my personal favorites from that evening. Enjoy!
