Getting humbled, one way or another

That John Denvers full of… January 24, 2011

If you’ve seen Dumb and Dumber, you know how the line goes. Thankfully he wasn’t full of it, Aspen is an awesome place. Especially for skiing, backpacking and people watching.

Yesterday our pack of chicas enjoyed a day on Aspen Mountain with fresh snow and sun. Right away we met a lady from Guest Services who told us where all the good stuff was. And she insisted we pose with Highlands Bowl as our 5th buddy. There it is between our group. If you’ve never hiked the bowl, wait for the next storm and as the famous philosopher NIKE said, just do it.

We found the goods all over the place. This is Walsh’s run looking out into the Independence area.

I like Leah’s airplane impression

The view toward Conundrum Valley. Also a great place to backpack in the summer. You end up at some hot springs! All outdoor activities should end with hot springs.

With all that sun, my goggle tan is off to a great start. Or rather, my probability of skin cancer is increasing…
