Aspen Misc.: Community Photos (Sept. 19, 2021)

Reader Kathryn Rabinow was one of several readers who submitted photos of the Tiger Squadron that flew over Aspen on Sept. 11. “Today in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado it is a beautiful day,” she wrote. “People are biking and hiking and picnicking. As I walked in solitude I heard a distance rumble; then a roar. I looked to the skies and wept as I watched the five old planes fly up and down the forested valley in a tribute to those who died 20 years ago. They did not forget.”
