Here we go again

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:

Here we go again. April 6 and Wagner Park is closed to people and pets.

I’ll bet the park will again be closed during the pleasant spring months as the city of Aspen bends over for the Food and Wine Fest in June. Two months of park preparation for four days of hobnobbing on green grass that destroys the surface for everyone else for the entire summer. We need accountability from Food and Wine to restore the park post haste after they tear it up in June.

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.
