I must say that driving through Colorado was absolutely gorgeous.
The mountains were so colorful compared to the Sierra Nevadas of California that I am used to,
and I loved the white, story-bookish Aspens.
Is it just me, or do they have eyes?
Aspen was probably my favorite of all of the cities that we visited.
We stayed at the most charming and well-kept lodge. I felt like I was in Switzerland!
Downtown would be difficult not to love.
Pedestrian friendly and lined with (expensive) shops,
there was even a landscaped stream running through the middle.
We rode a gondola to the top of Aspen Mountain - 11,212 feet high.
Later, we stopped by what is known as the most photographed mountains in North America:
I can see why.
I love love loved Aspen and am looking forward to visiting again when it's covered in snow!
Stay tuned for our last stop...
