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.

There's much more to do: take a memorable drive along Independence Pass, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Maroon Bells, take in the dramatic natural features at Rocky Mountains, and pause for some photo ops at The John Denver Sanctuary.
