Rocky Mountain High

Known as a ski resort town, Aspen's history goes back to its roots as a silver-mining village tucked away in an isolated valley of the Rocky Mountains. The abundance of Aspen trees in the area gave the location its name. In the late 20th century, the town blossomed into a tourist center for its ski slopes and the White River National Forest. The town of less than 6,000 people has evolved to embrace both travelers with rustic outdoor spirit and those with upscale tastes. Both Hunter S. Thompson and John Denver popularized the destination as the ideal place to live, because of its combination of small-town honesty and natural beauty.
