USA Pro Cycling Challenge
It was a blast to watch the start and finish of Stage 1 of the USA Pro Challenge this past Monday in Downtown Aspen. They started in Aspen and went to Snowmass Village before making their way back to Aspen. Then it was onto Stage 2 the next day where they rode from Aspen over Independence Pass to Breckenridge.

The CEOs of two of the most iconic mountain resorts in the United States are headlining the 2013 Aspen/Snowmass State of the Real Estate and Tourism Economy Symposium, on Thursday, Aug. 8, from 3:30-5 p.m., at the Aspen Meadows' Doerr-Hosier Center.
Hosted by BJ Adams and Company, the fifth annual symposium will take an in-depth look into the local real estate and mountain resort economy, focusing on information that is "keenly relevant" to Aspen and Snowmass residents, property owners, and business people.
The Snowmass Village Rodeo was a great time. I met and hung out with real cowboys who were nice enough to take me behind the scenes. I learned that this rodeo is the real deal; the bulls that are used for bull riding at the SMV Rodeo are considered to be in "the minor leagues." They observe the bulls, get them used to the crowds, and decide if they can make it into "the major leagues," if so, they move on. A great bucking bull can be worth upwards of $500,000!

It's wildflower season! Be sure to get out and explore the many wildflower laden trails around the Roaring Fork Valley. In the past month, I've come across countless species of wildflowers - now I just need to learn which ones they are! I took the photo above of a deer, in the middle of a fireweed meadow, at Maroon Lake in Aspen.
I made it out to the infamous Maroon Bells, and quickly realized why they are the most photographed peaks in North America. I encountered a few deer, a beaver (and his/her dam), many butterflies fluttering amongst the wildflowers, and enchanting views of the Maroon Bells and surrounding mountains.
