Summertime and the living’s easy

May Eynon

Summer in Aspen is all about the great outdoors as well as the infinite number of cultural activities offered everyday. With the hot summer weather comes a carefree attitude to celebrate. While the wildflowers are in full bloom, it’s time to hit the myriad trails that lace the valley. Tis’ the season to get on bikes and hikes as well as take in outdoor concerts in Snowmass, movies at Aspen Highlands and classical music at the Aspen Music Festival. Thanks to a proactive effort to rejuvenate the commercial core, local restaurants have been able to develop and expand their patios for al fresco dining, contributing to the lively vibe of the season.
