Here is a letter to the editor in the Aspen Daily News, Thanks, Aspen, by Troy Rayburn

Small excerpt …

“But, what really makes Aspen special and wonderful? The people. In this age of cynicism, it sounds kind of dorky, I know, but it’s true. I will never forget the great people of Aspen and the entire Roaring Fork Valley. These good people contributed to my life more than any words I could muster to express my appreciation.”

Nice letter. As a local, after a period of time, you often realize there is way more to a ski town then just skiing.
