I love editing beautiful sunny day photos when it's blizzarding out.... the scene outside my window is white/grey/freezing yucky... but it SO helps to edit photographs from sunny warm days with beautiful aspen trees in beautiful locations like Aspen!
And it has taken me a LONG time to edit these personal photos from a great week in Aspen in September! My photographer buddies Barb & Heidi from Illinois joined me for the mayhem... a day on the Roaring Fork River for the 8th Annual Rocky Mountain Flyfishing Classic - a fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis. And then several days in Redstone, Marble, Crystal, and the ghost town of Ashcroft (people say if things had worked differently in the 1800s... Aspen would actually be Ashcroft... 14 miles south of Aspen!)
And no matter what... this is BEAUTIFUL territory, especially in the fall months, and we picked the perfect week, September 23-28... according to the website Colorado.org. Oh yes, the Flyfishing Tournament also knows how to schedule this fall event!
We ventured to numerous locations in and around Aspen... my favorites are:
The Crystal Mill - the most photographed location in Colorado!
best guided by Crystal River Jeep Tours & local Smitty! (do NOT take your own vehicle here... much better access & info from Smitty!)
These CRYSTAL MILL PHOTOS now available for purchase online!
The Town of Crystal
6 miles out of Marble and One full hour ride by Jeep....
The Ghosttown of Ashcroft
The Avalanche Ranch outside of Redstone
