Hiking Aspen Mountain

A couple weeks ago we were in Aspen for a friend’s wedding and I had a spare hour for a hike up Aspen Mountain that I turned into 3.  I know that hiking up Aspen Mountain isn’t any real big deal, but it sure was fun.  We didn’t know it until we got there, but they had reopened Aspen Mountain for skiing this weekend because the snow was really good up at the top. So, my hike just went up until the snow started.  Then I turned around and went back.  It was a great day, a great wedding and I look forward to returning to this beautiful valley.  A few pictures are below.

We went to the John Denver Memorial Garden, which was beautiful!

Then a hike up the ski area

Then I was playing with Adobe Lightroom again on an image at sunset on Independence Pass.  I don’t know it well enough yet to describe exactly what I did to make it look this way, but much like tying knots where “if you don’t know the knot, tie a lot” I tried a lot of things…
