Once we came back down, we were in Aspen and it was 1pm so we decided to have a late lunch. Whilst driving around to find parking, Darren glimpsed down a street and saw a bear!! I guess it's not too uncommon to have bears around but by the time we could turn around safely, it was long gone.

Eventually we had to walk on the highway hard shoulder again until we got to our place....at least now we know for sure that both directions have no footpath for us to access the town...we really wanted to avoid having to drive but not sure walking on the hard shoulder when its snowy and dark is going to be the best idea either!

Turns out I must have had some sort of altitude sickness at 3000m above sea level... That happened on our hike in Santa Fe as well.. well, now I know :)
I recovered quickly and finished the hike at least...
