Aspen, CO

We were invited back to Aspen from a previous Housesit earlier this winter and gladly accepted the invitation. Spring in Aspen is revealing as the snow begins to melt the mountains come alive with color that is best described as “rich and intense”.

But what really strikes us as “rich”, is the way Coloradans love the outdoors and take every opportunity to enjoy it, regardless of weather conditions. They respect nature’s energy! We watched as this fly fisherwoman caught a beautiful rainbow trout as she stood in the spring thaw’s rushing waters…she squealed with excitement, then she gave the fish a ceremonial kiss and released it back into Roaring Fork Creek. A defining moment for all who witnessed.

“It’s Nature’s way of receiving you…”
