'Sleepy Little Mountain Town, United States, Colorado, Aspen, Fireworks

Below is an excerpt from my travel blog. Cheers.

 

 

In 2009, the median house or condo value in the state of Colorado was $273,000. The median household value in 2009 for Aspen Colorado was $873,000. It's no surprise that Aspen is expensive to live in. This mountain gem is situated in the Rocky Mountains and could be one of the most picturesque and pleasant places to live in the world.

 

I think Aspen is wonderful to visit in the summertime. Because of it's elevation, the area experiences cool evenings and warm, sunny conditions almost everyday. Biking, fishing, hiking, running, camping, rafting, shopping, golfing, eating out, the list of possible activities in Aspen in the summer is endless. It's an amazing place to both live and visit.

 

I climbed up Smuggler Mountain last night to get a view of the Fourth of July fireworks on Aspen Mountain with the city in the foreground.
