I would like to get folks thoughts on what has happened at
Maroon Lake. I was there yesterday and saw the results of a winter
avalanche that carried hundreds of evergreen trees into the lake. The
“ranger” I spoke to said they were going to leave them and let nature
takes it course. That sounds ok but I think the trees could damn up the lake
and cause it to overflow into the meadow closing off the whole area.
The small tributary closest to the walking path is already damned up and has no water in it. It has always had water in it even when the lake is low like it is now.
I have added an upcropped pano taken where Maroon Creek exits the lake
Any thoughts? Thanks
