Miggs’ spirit captured
December 4, 2002
(This letter was originally addressed to columnist Paul Andersen.)
Thank you for your editorial of Monday, Dec. 1.
We were out of town when the memorial for Miggs Durrance occurred on Aspen Mountain. However, your thoughts captured the essence of the dream of the people who came to Aspen. We felt we were at the memorial, if not in fact, at least in spirit.
I shall never look at these mountains again without recalling your magnificent words, “Clouds filled the valley below and swirled among the peaks like waves in a vast ocean cresting on snow-capped islands.”
Thank you so much.
Jane and Jim Jenkins
