Snowmass Mountain

Snowmass Mountain lies deep in the Elk Range, not far from

the jarring wealth of Aspen but a world apart.  On the eight mile hike to the lake below the mountain, we saw all the signs of spring and life.  Ducks and herons skimmed across the wetlands in the lazy stretch behind beaver dams on the otherwise lively Snowmass Creek.  Groves of Aspen shimmered bright and green in the breeze, and the earth smelled warm and rich.  Only if we looked up into the distance, far upstream, was the tranquility of the valley threatened by the high peaks.  But up we looked.  And up we went.  And down we skied!

Thanks, Bryce.
