To all the explorers, thrill-seekers, adventurers, dare-devils, pioneers, and those with wanderlust:
Your next adventure starts here! As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “It’s not the Destination, It’s the journey”, and here at Aspen Real Life, we 100% agree and go the extra mile to experience everything for you to better plan your activities. In our quest to find you the very best of Aspen and the Roaring Fork valley, we’ve traveled every inch of these beautiful mountains and have certainly brought back a tale or two. Whether you prefer strolling around town or venturing off the beaten path, we have something for you. So follow our lead and get ready to be amazed…
Everybody who lives here knows that the place to make business deals and to possibly fall in love, is on the gondola on Ajax Mountain in Aspen. Sure, there are other, darker, things that happen on the gondola like the Colorado Quickie (which originated in Aspen) and Clackwagglers who stand the chance of being tossed out of the gondola by locals. (Haven’t experienced this or don’t know what these are? Look them up in the Urban Dictionary).
My family and I have been wallowing down in the depths of a turbulent sea but we are coming up for air and as we swim out of the steely blues the light seeps in and the tones get warmer. Soon we’ll be gasping for breath as we break the surface of a new beginning.
