Artist's Description

Unlike most mountains in the Rockies that are composed of granite and limestone, the Bells are composed of metamorphic sedimentary mudstone that has hardened into rock over millions of years. Mudstone is weak and fractures readily, giving rise to dangerously loose rock along almost any route. The mudstone is responsible for the Bells’ distinctive maroon color.
My second morning there it was 17 degrees and a lot of the lake was frozen over. It’s really incredible to watch as the sun raises how this valley lights up.
