I’m taking off my apron for the next 2 weeks. 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, and although Aspen is famous for being a world class ski resort, 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 off on my favorite trail. Hunter Creek is a picturesque 3+ mile hike, with twists and turns, bridges and rushing water everywhere.
Starting out nice and easy
The creek is flowing
Until finally the trail levels off
We walk through Aspen groves
And see a bridge to our left
It’s looking promising
Until finally, the view!
There were beautiful wildflowers
And huts. This was the training camp for the 10th Mountain Division, which fought in the mountains during WWII.
One of the huts
Time to head home. What a great hike it’s been!
