This weekend, Basalt's Gold Medal trout streams will get a workout when the town hosts the US National Fly Fishing Championships. Twelve teams of five members each will compete on five different venues. Each team will be provided with the same boats and gear to level the playing field. Winners will be determined by the number and cumulative length of the fish they catch, although the event is catch-and-release.
Today's rainy and cool weather is ushering in a beautiful fall weekend and if you come visit us, this will be your view of the Maroon Bells! This photo was taken by Aspen Square's Brad Peate on this past Wednesday, September 25.
For a film lover, Aspen Filmfest is one of the fall's biggest highlights. Filmfest begins today with a slate of four movies, including "Reaching for the Moon" and "Muscle Shoals" - a documentary about the iconic Alabama recording studio where dozens of hits have been recorded. Because of construction at the Wheeler Opera House, the movies will be screened at the Isis Theater. For detailed movie listings, visit www.aspenfilm.org.
