Day 5 – May 14

There is no way to prepare for the Rocky Mountains. So vast, so surprising, so colorful. I used to live in Fort Collins, Colorado, and should have known what to expect as George and I worked our way west out of Denver. Hardly! Had they grown? Had the sky gotten bluer? My God!

George had a field day with his new camera. Nice shots, buddy!

We met up with my nephew Eric Olsen, who has lived and worked at Aspen for 16 years. Eric is an impressive young man who moved to Aspen out of high school in Illinois. He started out at the bottom of the food chain and has worked his way up into a supervisory position. He took us to the top of the mountain – more than 11,000 feet above sea level – for a spectacular view!
