Snowmass Village history: Brush Creek Road paved with good intentions
From Travis Edmonson’ epic poem, printed in part in The Snowmass Villager in September 1968:
“It’s the road! The blasted, pitted, pot-holed, choking, slimy, joltin’ road! I know there’s two go through! Both come off of eighty-two! I’d stay off if I was you!
So here’s the road
The river’s tossing down below
The shale cliffs that rise
To the sloping highland meadows
Where the Rockies hold the skies
‘Snowmass-at-Aspen.’ There’s the sign.
Here’s where we make our turn
To follow Little Creek from eighty-two
Up to Big Burn …”
