September 14, 2014
VIDEO: Aspen Times mountain correspondent Corby Anderson takes the viewers all across the Roaring Fork Valley and surrounding wilderness for a new activity or adventure every summer day.
Aspen official report:
Doc Holiday is perhaps the valley’s most famous resident. After a short but illustrious stint as a gambling dentist in the wild west town of Tombstone, where he participated in the famous OK Corral shootout and subsequent battles on the side of the Earp’s, Holiday fell ill to tuberculosis. He landed in Glenwood in an attempt to recoup, but succumbed to the scourge in 1867.
In this episode of On The Hill, Aspen Times adventure correspondent Corby Anderson takes you on a short, steep hike to Linwood Cemetary in Glenwood, where Doc is permanently interred.
