Maroon Peak

As we start to conclude the Colorado series, I wanted to post some pictures that I wasn't able to edit in time. This first picture is of Maroon Peak. After taking pictures of the sunrise and visiting Crater Lake, I ventured off on the Scenic Trail Loop. I ended up on the other side of Maroon Lake (the west side) and facing Maroon Peak and a stream that flows from it. While I was taking this long-exposure picture, two deer ran in front of me and the camera. Unfortunately, they were too fast to be captured in this picture, but it was an incredible experience to have two deer run right next to you then cross this stream in front of a huge mountain.
