Ashcroft Mountain

One of the most scenic roads just outside of the Maroon Bells/Maroon Lake Recreation area is down along Castle Creek Road.  Castle Creek Road takes you down along a scenic drive to the ghost town of Ashcroft and to a beautiful view of Ashcroft Mountain. After sunrise at Maroon Lake, we headed down to Ashcroft. The clouds and fog were still settled over the valley, but it didn’t take away from the beautiful view of Ashcroft Mountain along with the fall colors of the aspens.  Here’s a wonderful fall view of Ashcroft Mountain.
