Water in the Age of Silver: Touring Aspen's

8/25 Water in the Age of Silver: Touring Aspen’s “Holden Works”

A program of Roaring Fork Conservancy offered in partnership with City of Aspen Parks & Open Space and AHS

Discover the largest industrial site in the history of Pitkin County: a then-state-of-the-art silver processing plant known as the Holden Lixiviation Works. Built on the banks of Castle Creek in 1891 by Edward Royal Holden, the plant led to innovative and sometimes destructive uses of water resources for hydropower and waste disposal. Explore the history, the museum, and the remnants of the “Works” (including the newly reconstructed cable derrick) to learn how one of our most precious resources, freshwater, was utilized in a different era.

Tuesday, August 25 | 5:30 PM | Holden-Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum, Aspen. Free, advance registration is required with Roaring Fork Conservancy (opens June 30)

Repost @intrinsic_way・・・Local athlete who came to Emily Lubchenco Hightower with daily anxiety took the 30-day Nasal-only challenge to the Peaks. He shares below about Highland Bowl, a summit at 12,392' and a hike of 717' from the top of Lodge Lift. All for a mere 2500 vertical drop to Deep Temerity. What a playground to train stability.// "When I started nasal breathing only to hike the bowl, it sucked at first. I felt slow, frustrated. The next time, it was easier than mouth breathing and I realized my head had changed. Usually, I'm racing with thoughts about work and stress the whole way up, gaping with my mouth open. Nasal breathing slowed my brain down, and now I notice the surrounding peaks, my foot placement, my friends, my strength. //...my breathing was causing stressful thinking, making me anxious. My hiking time actually improved by the 4th weekend of nasal-only. I'm doing 37-minute laps, and I feel calm and powerful at the top. Thank you!"//✳Link in Intrinsic Way bio✳Our deepest dive into applications of breath gears for training stability in our upcoming Webinar, March 5th at noon EST @Shiftadapt Uneasy Athlete with myself and @_BrianMacKenzie@preparetoperform@shift_adapt@dsyeager7 #stopgaping#breathgears #shifthappens #mouthwideshut #knowyourshift #skillofstress #anxiety #athletes #highlandbowl #trainstability #Highlandbowl#aspenbusinessconnectmemberphoto 1 credit @jswansonphotophoto 2 Oz age 11 heading upphoto 3 credit @aspenpeakmag ...
