We Coloradoans are proud to be sending a 73-foot Englemann spruce to Washington, as the US Capitol Christmas tree. The tree was harvested from a section of our very own White River National Forest near Meeker - the first time the national tree has been used from that specific forest. The tree will be driven to Washington DC over the next several weeks by former US Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell.
We love our Halloween celebrations here in the Roaring Fork Valley and this year is no exception. Tonight a "Halloween Black Egg Hunt" for kids will take place at 5:30 at Crown Mountain Park in Basalt (be sure to bring a flashlight and a candy bag - costumes suggested). On Sunday, October 28, the Aspen Skating Club will present their annual free Halloween Skating Party from 5:15-6:15pm.
According to a report in today's Aspen Times, the fall is an ideal time to enjoy prime fly-fishing on the rivers in the Roaring Fork Valley. Fewer crowds and lower water levels plus the greater likelihood of fish congregating in deeper pools means that concentrations of fish are easier to find. When you factor in our beautiful fall weather and scenery, it's an opportunity that anglers should definitely not pass up. Give us a call to book your October fishing trip today!
