History Mystery: In the Forest

13.35.29-web

 

Where near Aspen is this? Does that forest look familiar? Sometimes it’s a little tricky to pinpoint the location in a photograph, so we’ve picked out a few that have less-than-obvious sense of place.  Send us the right answer and the first correct respondent will receive two passes to any tour of your choice (History Coach, West End Walking Tour, Historic Bike Tour or Hotel Jerome). Send your suggestions to archives@aspenhistory.org. (You can click on the photo to make it larger).

Tour Time

This summer our Time Travel Tuesdays have a twist: they’re tours. It’s like field-trips for adults. We’ll be hosting seven weeks of tours, every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. They’ll take participants all over the upper Roaring Fork Valley and explore iconic  and lesser-known parts of our our history. Walk through time with us!
