Colorado! Last day

For my last day in Colorado Karen and I drove to Aspen.  Our first stop was to ride the Silver Queen gondola up to the top of the mountain.

It was an absolutely beautiful day.  There were lots of people coming up to enjoy lunch at the Sundeck Restaurant and to hike
the trails.

On top of the world!

Karen was a little freaked out by the height but eventually relaxed and enjoyed the ride down.

When we got back into Aspen we took a quick walk through The Little Nell, a small but beautiful 5 star ski in/ski out hotel just steps away from the Silver Queen.

Aspen is a cute little town where we enjoyed a bit of shopping and just walking around.

As we left Aspen to drive across Independence Pass on our way back to Avon, I saw how Aspen got its name.

Independence Pass was a pleasant surprise.  Oh my, how beautiful!

The beautiful Rockies

Snow in July!

Gorgeous country!

I was so glad to be able to get another up close and personal look at the beautiful Rocky Mountains before having to head back to Washington State.  What a beautiful end to a perfect trip.  Thanks again Karen for a great time!
