Summer heat got you down? Time for a float down the lazy waterways around the Northstar Nature Preserve. Aspen's only real beach is calling....grab a tube, a raft and some friends - head up 82 towards Independence Pass and put in around the Wildwood School. Head out a couple miles back toward town by the bridge, when you've had enough relaxing for one day (not likely). Ask a local for details or better yet, ask your friendly hosts at Aspen Square Hotel!
