Early September, we went to Aspen Colorado.
I spent 2 summers in Aspen 2005 and 2006 while Clare attending Aspen Music Festival and School.
We had lots of beautiful memories there, and I was longing to go back but didn't get a chance until this year.
I was very very excited, I want to go back to see all the familiar things, familiar places after 7 years.
We took a walk at Benedict Tent, since it wasn't summer for the Music Festival, hardly a soul there, the place was peaceful and quiet, we took our time to walk, to smell the flowers, to see the Aspen leaves dance in the breeze, and to listen to the stream.
and then we drove to the Music School, castle creek still look the same, and I remember having lunch at the canteen (the brown and green building on the left) with my girls, they were very young then.

I never get tired of the roaring sound of the creek, Aspen Music School
I remember the bus driver at the Music School would stop and pick berries while waiting for the bus to load up
although I wish to see Aspen in gold and yellow this trip, but the view is great no matter what time of the year, and it gives me a good reason to go back again next year since we are still a tad early this time
There is something about Aspen that feels nostalgic, like Maroon Bell.... always picturesque
I pictured a man climbing the cliff with the moon as his backdrop, he is a dear friend of mine who passed away early 2007
On our way to Denver the next day, we took the scenic route and drove by Independence pass, again, is a place I've been there couple of times, I hiked and loved the time spent in the mountain with crisp, clean air.
