Summer in Aspen

Parking Lot Puddle

Parking Lot Puddle

Aspen, Colorado is a great place to go in the summer.   Mild weather is nearly guaranteed, and the scenery is beautiful when not covered with snow.  Lots of bars and restaurants ranging from moderate to very expensive are available.  Tons of Texans are there escaping the heat.   Independence pass has an elevation 12,095 feet.  It’s the continental divide for water drainage in North America.

  8. I like the fact that you have divided this post in 2 parts : colorful spectacular views + black-and-white portraits (and you’re always good at findind great titles, such as “A Blond Conversation” ) !
