A sight to behold

Dear Editor:

At noon on a blue-sky day, walk along Castle Creek Road beyond the Aspen Chapel; then climb the cross-country trail behind Whitcomb Terrace. Look at the gold and orange of turning oak leaves and the yellows of cottonwood and aspen, glowing against the dark pines of Shadow Mountain; all black-lighted at noon by our September sun.

See this for yourself, soon. Then come for a great lunch at the Senior Center near Aspen Valley Hospital … Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
