Cathedral vs. cathedrals

Dear Editor:I just came down from hiking to Cathedral Lake. Driving into town, I saw two new obnoxiously humongous houses embedded in the mountains (one on each side of the road). These cathedrals, McMansions, starter castles and all the senseless waste destroying and rebuilding homes, are rapidly depleting our natural resources.People used to come to Aspen and leave their materialism behind. Now people bring it all with them – more, bigger, most, best. Aspen is a five letter word – money.We have lost almost our entire community.Ruth HarrisonAspen
