The Maroon Bells must be two of the most photographed mountains in North America. 14,014 foot North Maroon Peak is visible closest to the lake, and 14,156 foot South Maroon Peak is nestled behind the North peak, to the left in this photograph. Named because of their bell-like shapes, the peaks' reflection in Maroon Lake is particularly spectacular during the autumn when the Aspen trees turn brilliant yellow.
