Letter: How dare they?

I never cease to be amazed by the number of lodge vehicles that I see regularly dropping guests off at the Hunter Creek hiking trail. The majority of the vehicles are from the Limelight, Hotel Jerome and Little Nell. Do these guests really need a ride to the trailhead?

There is a free city bus available less than a two-minute walk from all of these hotels. It runs all day long, people. You are going hiking, after all! Think about preserving our environment and perhaps getting a little more exercise, and take the free Hunter Creek bus, which will drop you off just steps from the trailhead. You might even meet a few real locals on that bus! But then, maybe you belong to the group that likes to walk down the Aspen cobblestones in high heels and complains about the uneven surface.
