  • When I looked it up, I thought it was absolutely beautiful and I had to go see it. When I actually went it was so much more beautiful than I expected. There is so much room for dog walks or to have your little ones run around and play. It was like a mini adventure going there.
  • What a serene place. I grew up listening to John Denver and it was a nostalgic visiting this place. Nice quotes and lyrics of John Denver songs are engraved on the stones. Couldn't find my favorite song ' country road, take me home' thought. A great place for a day out and just relax. Was sad that we had to leave after half an hour since we were out of town visitors.
  • I am not much for manicured spaces but this place is really well done. Awesome little alcoves and corners with beautiful stream and vegetation. Very picturesque. Great for shoots. And it's free. Must see if you are in Aspen.
  • Beautiful area that always has amazing flowers. Well worth checking out if you're in town.
  • The was a beautiful experience, was so many spirit totem rocks here and very spiritual. A Indian medicine wheel.
