Aspen photo diary (part 1)

Aspen Photo Diary-1It’s my first time here in Aspen. I’m not much of a snow or cold weather person, so it wasn’t really on my bucket list. But, my lovely friend Lauren invited me to join her and a few others at a timeshare so I figure why not. It’s absolutely beautiful here. Aspen is a small (and yes, somewhat ritzy) town with some of the most picturesque views. Since Lauren and I don’t really ski, we’ve spent the last few days exploring the town, lounging around and shopping, and eating amazing food. I made a big mistake in forgetting to bring my camera battery (d’oh!), but Amazon Prime (free trial here) quickly saved me with a new battery so here is a bit of what I’ve experienced so far. More to come next week.
