Aspen Trip!

11 Jan

Happy Monday everyone! I got such an overwhelming response to my Aspen pictures that I’m going to share some more here. It was the first trip to Aspen for my wife and I but definitely not our last. I feel like the way we planned it was perfect. We landed in Denver and rented a car and drove to Aspen, which is one of the most beautiful stretches of snow capped mountains I’ve ever seen. The drive took 3.5 hours but flew by as we got lost in all the scenery. Once we arrived in Aspen we stayed 4 days which is a nice amount of time to see the sights and partake in activities. I really loved ice skating but the ultimate bucket list check off was snowmobiling deep into the Aspen mountains for hours. We even saw moose!!!!! As usual, we ate our way through the town- Aspen is known for their strong culinary game and  were not let down once. Everything we ate was amazing! And as far as scenery goes, everywhere we looked was straight off of a post card. It was breathtaking to say the least.

I keep getting asked “Is aspen expensive?” Expensive would be an understatement! It is off the charts crazy expensive from the hotels, to activities, to shopping, to dining. When places are this astronomical in price, a once in a lifetime visit will usually suffice, but there was something so magical about Aspen that I will go back and overspend, because frankly, it was worth it! I suggest everybody visit this gem during the winter months!
