The month of May in the Roaring Fork Valley and Carbondale has been stellar! Fran is enjoying playing the Aspen Glen golf course and Sue is enjoying walks within the community. On Sue’s walk yesterday along Indian Paintbrush Road in Aspen Glen, she snapped this photo of a rustic red barn in the meadow across the river. The barn is evidence of the valley’s ranching history. The magnificent red bluffs above are part of the Maroon Formation, dating back to the ancestral Rocky Mountains. This is the same formation that created the iconic Maroon Bells in Aspen. The red bluffs are ever changing with the light; they are iridescent at sunset. Shale makes up the grey bluffs and is found in between the rocks of the Maroon Formation along Highway 82 south of Carbondale. Light plays with the shale bluffs too. If you look closely, you’ll see shades of pinks and darker greys. We’ll save the photo of snow-capped Mt. Sopris for another day!
