What a pretty town this is. We were in Aspen about a week before their peak summer season starts. It was great weather with cool mornings and warm afternoons. The sun was strong. We walked to restaurants and shops and along trails. We relaxed with books and walks through town. Here are some pics of the trip.
We had dessert at a restaurant called “Junk.” It was comfort food served in quirky ways. We got a s’mores plate served on a block of wood. I think this pic is so cool with the fire on Shelley’s marshmallow.
Also an ice cream sandwich. The ice cream was good, the cookie was too hard.
How cool to live on the mountain like that? You know I don’t see mountains often.
It seems that every weekend in the summertime, there is a festival or activity. This weekend was an outdoor expo with a race.
At night, people go paragliding from the top of the mountain. Looks pretty scary! They looked like they were just hanging in place at times.
Snow on the mountains! Way at the top.
Their biggest weekend is this coming weekend. The Food and Wine Classic. Big deal! Huge celebs. They start building the tents over a week ahead.
I had some fun taking pictures of a fountain with different camera settings. A fast shutter speed makes a lot of difference!
Restaurants at the bottom of the mountain. Pretty great dining scenery. We ate here on the last night.
Again, snow on the mountains!
One more Aspen post tomorrow, and one yesterday if you missed it!
