Backpacking The MOST INCREDIBLE public land in Colorado!

The Maroon Bells - Snowmass Wilderness Area was designated as wilderness in the original Wilderness Act of 1964. This Wilderness spans nearly 200k acres throughout Colorado’s White River and Gunnison National Forests. It is an incredible backpacking destination. Located just outside of Aspen, Colorado - there aren't many places like this. I've explored and lived in the Rocky Mountains for years, and I must say, this wilderness area is easily at the top of my list.

The famed Four Pass Loop backpacking route within this wilderness area is an international treasure. The 26 mile circuit climbs over four mountain passes higher than 12,000ft, past clear alpine lakes and among the craggy Elk Range peaks.

My mom and sister have dabbled with backpacking, but this trip was their first major undertaking of the rugged terrain and high elevations of the Colorado Rockies. We packed up four days worth of food, booze, and gear and headed into the backcountry. ENJOY!! :)
