We set of for Aspen from Dallas on Saturday the afternoon. We stayed overnight in Amarillo Texas home of the US Quarter Horse Head Quarters and Museum.
Leonie and Scott booked us a very nice a condominium in Aspen Colorado.
The Prospector is located on very close to the mall area and is so well situated. No need to use the car as everything is well within walking distance.
We crossed Independence Pass which has an elevation of 12000+ feet and was spectacular to say the least.
We really love Aspen and it has swept aside the great things we have seen and done over the past few weeks and become the highlight of our trip. I really hope we get a chance to return here again some time. This is one place you could come in any season and it would be different each time.
While we were staying in Aspen Stage 2 of the USA Pro Cycle Challenge finished in Aspen. We walked down to the finish and watched the riders come in. Cadel Evans came in with the leaders and is well placed going into the 3rd stage. It was a fantastic to see world class cyclists in action.
A once in a lifetime chance for us. Who would have thought Cadel Evans and David Beckham in the same trip.
As pictures speak louder than words I am going to fill this post with some of the beautiful scenery in and around Aspen.
Tomorrow our peaceful holiday in the mountains ends and we head home via Santa Fe New Mexico.
The Aspen Gondola gave Lee and I a great opportunity to look down on Aspen from a great height. It was so peaceful riding to the summit and down again
