Aspen Misc.: Favorite photos from August taken by Times staff photographer

Staff photographer Kelsey Brunner continues to document all the beauty of daily life in the Roaring Fork Valley

On the first Sunday of each month, our Aspen Times staff photographer Kelsey Brunner (who also handles our Snowmass Sun duties) goes back through her images and picks a few of her favorites from the previous 30 days. Kelsey’s August photos capture the end of summer in the Roaring Fork Valley as local children go back to school.

Pitkin County Open Space and Trails ranger Megan Ballard steps aside from shoveling to allow Raquel Leslie and Sebastian Wagner to pass through a cleared out path in one of the muddy spots on the Rio Grande Trail in Aspen on Monday, August 2, 2021. Below Stein Falls, mud and debris had slid down from the hillside covering the trail from continual rainfall throughout the weekend. Ballard said she had been telling people that the situation could change rapidly, especially if Aspen gets more rain, and that the thick, sticky mud would be on the trail for days to come. The Rio Grande is still open, but there are areas that are difficult to pass. (Kelsey Brunner/The Aspen Times)
