The Aspen Times reported today that Independence Pass reopened for the summer season yesterday, May 26, at noon.. The Pass traditionally opens just prior to Memorial Day weekend, and this year was no exception. In anticipation of the opening, cars and bicycles were waiting on the Aspen side of the winter gate, raring to go up and over the "short" way to Denver and beyond. The scenic drive over Independence Pass is not to be missed if you have the time to explore the area, and also provides guests with an optional route for driving to Aspen from the east.
