ASE - Aspen, CO aka America's Canary City
1. The years between 1920 and late 1930's were considered the period of tranquility between economic booms of silver and skiing.
2. In 1947 Lift One carried its first passengers up Aspen Mountain aka Ajax. As they say, the rest is history.
3. If a picture is worth a thousand words, I'm glad Maroon Bells are photogenic. The two peaks of Elk Mountain are the two most photographed in the world.
