Redstone is a happenin’ place

Dear Editor:

Nice of you to do an article on Redstone (“Soul searching in Redstone,” June 19, 2011, Aspen Times Weekly); however, I wish the front page and some of the article was more positive.

Redstone is the greatest spot to visit and live in. Sure, there is a recession but it’s not just in Redstone. We spend at least four months or more in Redstone and cannot think of a more beautiful place or better place to be!

Yes, I hope people will come to share all the great things here.

On Friday afternoon and evenings, wine tasting and a farmers market at the Company Store, and music at the Crystal Club. The Redstone Art gallery has marble work and other wonderful art, plus special exhibits. The shops have things for adults and children, great food at the restaurants, and you can fill up for groceries at the General Store.

Plus, it is beautiful looking up to the mountains, or down on the Crystal, which you can enjoy sitting in your chair or walking. If you wish you can sit in the park, you can enjoy having lunch, letting children play on the playground and just getting away from the cell phones for a while.

Think positive about this wonderful historic town with the castle, inn, coke ovens and its wonderful history. Back in 1932 Arthur Carhart wrote a book called “Colorado,” and there are several pages on Redstone. His words were: “Why wouldn’t this make a resort village, a unique place for mountain living, if a slight reorganization were made, and people were told of its charm and glory?”

Well, it has done just that!
