A brick of remembrance

Dear Editor:

I would like to sincerely thank Sam and his fellow workers at the Aspen Water Department for making it possible to procure an original mall brick, which will be presented to Margot Dick, one of the two young women responsible for the creation of the Aspen pedestrian mall. (The other was Margot’s best friend and Aspen schoolmate, Kathy Dutcher.)

I know tracking down this memento was not an easy task, but thanks to your continued efforts and those of my friend Tom Sharkey, you succeeded. I know Margot will treasure this reminder of their efforts for a long, long time.

Establishing the mall was not easy, but they were very sturdy in their aims and made it happen. And that has become a lovely gift for us all.

Thank you all.

Nancy Dick

On the Fly: Forever thankful


I try to remember to give thanks every day I spend outside, whether it be floating the Colorado or Roaring Fork, fishing an epic dry fly hatch on the Fryingpan, or teasing up tiny brook trout on a remote lake or stream. We’re spoiled rotten here, so it’s easy to be thankful.
