... the pass which is a mountain road with switchbacks and steep drops, then eventually you end up in Aspen.
We left around 10 am and started the drive...even before the pass it was so beautiful with views of mountains, lakes, and all different coloured leaves on the trees. A lot of trees have started to lose their leaves so probably was much more colourful a few weeks ago.
This morning we had planned to skype a few people, however the WIFI had gone down last night and still wasn't working so we had give up on skype for now.
There were a few things going on today in near by towns...first off we stopped in Edwards (10 mins drive west) for a Pumpkin Patch. It said there would be lots of pumpkin displays, however there wasn't as much as they had made out...it was still fun to see so many different shapes, sizes and colours of pumpkins.

Aspen reminded me a bit of Banff, cute little ski/snowboard town with lots of hikes in the summer.
Unfortunately, I did not realize how high up Aspen is (2400m above sea level) and once we started our hike at Maroon Bells, I felt quite dizzy and tired. 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...
