Often referred to as Aspen's "back-door", Colorado Highway 82 has been designated as part of the federal government's National Scenic Byway System.
Aspenites know that driving over Independence Pass shaves forty miles off the trip to Denver during the summer season. The "Pass" as it is locally referred to opens the week before Memorial Day and closes after the first series of heavy snows in October.

Last night I received an invitation to get the new Aspen Shines application for my IPhone from a friend on Facebook. I downloaded the app, and much to my surprise, it is very useful for locals and visitors alike.
Features include daily events, lists and recommendations of local restaurants and hot spots, and up to date information on area weather and the airport schedule.
This is a must have for people who live in the area or who are planning a trip to Aspen.

Locals and visitors alike were shocked at the news that the popular eatery, D19 would be closing its doors at the end of the summer season. However, an announcement was made this week that D19 will be reopening in the space formerly occupied by Mogador and most recently Dish on the Hyman Avenue mall.
Council not Ready to OK Wheeler Expansion
Aspen City Council will not grant conceptual approval of the Wheeler Opera House's proposed expansion until they see a pro forma and a long-term operations budget for the expanded facility.
The proposal includes a new sub-grade theater, expanded lobbies on the second and third floor, a community meeting room, new offices for Wheeler staff and an affordable housing unit.
