After the excitement of the World Cup weekend we needed a quieter day to recharge our batteries. So a sleep in was in order and very much enjoyed. It was another beautiful sunny day so we spent the afternoon exploring the streets of Aspen which originally was an old silver mining town in the 1890s.

I never realised that Denver was in 'tornado territory' until I saw the Tornado Shelter sign at the airport. An interesting thought. A quick transfer to our shuttle and then it was a 4 1/2 hour drive to Aspen.
Amazed at the difference ...
