I arrived in Aspen, Colorado on the 4th of July with my husband and dog in tow. We've been frequent visitors to this little gem of a town for the past 10 years. Aspen may be famous for being a world class ski resort, but summer is my favorite time to visit.
The blue skies, abundant sunshine, and cool mountain air, compliment the natural beauty that is Aspen.
The other day we set out to hike my favorite trail, Hunter Creek. It's a picturesque 3+ mile hike. with twists and turns, bridges, and lots of rushing water. Starting off nice and easy...
The creek is flowing
And the trail is getting steeper
Finally it levels off and we walk through Aspen groves
And see a bridge on our left
At last, the view!
There were beautiful wildflowers
And there were huts. This was the training camp for the 10th Mountain Division, who fought in the mountains during WWII.
Time to head home. What a great hike it's been!
