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 July photos capture summer in the Roaring Fork Valley.
