Aspenopolis is what we’ve become

Wow! The traffic in this town is incredible and becoming unbearable. Where have the good old days gone?

Maybe it’s time to consider a name change for Aspen!

Some suggestions are:

1: “Construction Junction”

2: “Auto Heaven”

3: “Congestion City”

4: “Traffic Town”

Or simply put: “Anywhere USA”
