As you might expect, while we were in Colorado there was snow. Not just a little snow but lots-many of layers of heavy snow. You could actually see the different layers on roofs like the layers of rock, looking like folded linen as a friend said. The skiing was some of the best in years. We visited two places-Vail and Aspen. I loved the town of Aspen, totally new to me. While there, we visited the memorial park to John Denver who lived here.
The sanctuary is very simple, rather like his songs. I bought one of his CD’s while there, a complilation of his greatest hits. It was nice to listen to while in Aspen.
Verses from some of his best known songs were carved into simple boulders.
As you might expect, there are Aspen trees every where.
This old tombstone in a nearby cemetery gives you an idea of the amount of snow there was there. Alot of it was rounded like this.
