12 miles southwest of Aspen and near Snowmass are two peaks in the Elk Mountains, Maroon Peak and North Maroon Peak, separated by about a third of a mile. Both peaks are ”fourteeners”. Maroon Peak, at 14,163 feet (4317.0 m), is the 27th highest peak in Colorado. North Maroon Peak, at 14,019 feet (4273.0 m), is the 50th highest.
Hans and Johanna have made many trips to Colorado and acted as our tour guides.
