Notes
Leg 12 of Ramble Round the Rockies. From Aspen we head for Durango. Aspen is located in Pitkin County Colorado in a remote area of the Rocky Mountains Sawatch Range along the Roaring Fork River at an elevation just below 8000 ft above sea level. Founded as a mining camp during the Colorado Silver Boom and named because of the abundance of aspen trees in the area the city boomed during the 1880s. Following its quieter years Aspens fortunes reversed in the mid 20th century when neighbouring Aspen Mountain was developed into a ski resort. Singer John Denver wrote two songs about Aspen after settling there.
