Maroon Bells- Snowmass 4 Passes Loop
Wonderful 3 day hike with Sue, Erik and Kevin. Kevin and I had done this loop 2 years ago in the clockwise direction and we returned to do it in the counterclockwise direction. This was, again, the prettiest hike we have done despite the fact that visibility was limited by a little bit of smoke from fires many miles away. The counterclockwise direction made the first day quite a bit harder, but we started early, took our time, and the rest of the trip was then easier and more enjoyable. This hike starts at 9,600 feet and crosses 4 mountain passes that are all at about 12,500 feet -- rough for an old man but I made it. Beautiful sights! Fabulous company! Fresh air and water from clear mountain streams (UV sterilized of course)!
