I captured several photos of the elk herd that visited Aspen Glen last week. Elk are camera shy – thanks to my zoom lens I was able to snap this photo. Snowfall has been plentiful this season (over 117% of average state-wide) and the deep snow in the high country brings the elk to the valley. Several days ago we watched from a window as a pair of bald eagle flew over the river. The two and a half miles of Roaring Fork River which meander through Aspen Glen, help to create a wildlife sanctuary both winter and summer.
Aspen Glen is just minutes from the many restaurants and shops in Carbondale Colorado. Carbondale has just added three new restaurants – food for another blog! If you long for the Colorado lifestyle and all that the Roaring Fork Valley offers, please call, email or text us to discuss needs, wants and desires. Come join the vibrant neighborhood of Aspen Glen where fun residents and winter elk and bald eagles happily coexist!
