Today we drove to the campground we would have stayed in to get our mail, outside of Carbondale it was remote and would have been too much out of the way for us now. We then drove an easy road to Aspen, at the airport corporate jets are lined up for a mile. We saw several fly into the airport including a US Govt. jet. The drive into these mountains is beautiful and Aspen is very nice, but just jam packed with cars and people. We decided to get back to a less conjested area even though the scenery was great. We checked out Glenwood Springs, walked some of the old town and checked out shops. We also drove to the No Name rec. area and saw people biking and floating down the river, a very popular activity here. There are many drives into the mountains but a 4 wheel vehicle is needed, probably most of these roads were left from the mining era as in Moab.The drive on I70 through the canyon is just spectacular so it wasn't bad to do it twice in one day. Although it is warm in the afternoon, it cools down at night and is very comfortable. We have mountains around us but are in an open valley so cell and satellite are working.
