Monday in Historic Aspen

This is the block that includes our historic Hotel Jerome. To the far left side of this photo is Carl's Pharmacy and the blue building is the Aspen Times.

Anyone interested in a dip in our hotel hot tub this afternoon? Or perhaps just lounging by the pool?

Or maybe you prefer to relax and chat a bit on a bench here in downtown Aspen?

This is a view of Aspen Mtn., aka Ajax, and the ski runs coming down the face into town. Yes, of course I was standing in the street taking photos.

Rich and I enjoyed a most delicious breakfast at our hotel this morning; I have to include a shot of one of the chandeliers and recessed ceiling in that dining room...oh my! Our hotel opened at Thanksgiving in 1889 so there is much heavy, gorgeous wood paneling and trim everywhere...fabulously historic!

After breakfast, Rich met Bill & Deanne to ski at Buttermilk. He just got back to our room ecstatic over his afternoon on the slopes! He wore his favorite ski jacket today...this one has some history, a great story about the custom embroidered Columbine flowers (the Colorado state flower) that were applied at a shop in Aspen years ago to repair it after the jacket got caught and torn on a lift here.

  1. Might be a little cool for a dip in the pool, but I would love to meet you for a chat on one of those benches. What time will you be there? =)
