What a busy summer and fall this has been for me here in Aspen, Colorado. There are always so many varied activities to enjoy and participate in that it’s just impossible to partake of all of them.

I guess I really should be grateful that I have so many to choose from, and as I look back at this past summer and fall, I realize how many activities I actually was involved in.

I was able to:
  • Avail myself of the traditional fall Aspen activities of Ruggerfest, the annual fall color spectacular and Snowmass Balloon Festival

When I look at it, this seems like a pretty long list, and I get worn out just looking at it, but here’s a lineup of just some of the other events and activities in Aspen, Colorado that I did NOT manage to get to:

  • jazz Aspen/Snowmass
  • EcoFest
  • Aspen Community Picnic
  • Aspen Ideas Festival
  • Aspen Security Forum
  • Other Aspen Institute forums
  • ACES events
  • Aspen Physics events and activities
  • Aspen Food and wine
  • Aspen Community Theater
  • Outside in Aspen
  • Aspen Arts Festival

Now, as the snow is falls once again, I contemplate which activities and events I plan to attend or pursue this winter and spring. 

Of course, I will be cross country skiing regularly, and perhaps I will get back into ice skating and perhaps even sledding, but here is a sample of other upcoming Aspen, Colorado activities that I hope to enjoy as well:

  • Aspen Physics Lectures
  • ACES lectures and activities (Winter Star Gazing Rock Bottom Ranch, Snowshoe Tours, Potbelly Perspective Slide Show & Lecture Series Hallam Lake, Naturalist Nights Lecture Series Hallam Lake, Winter Ecology at Hallam Lake
  • Aspen Winternational
  • Aspen Community Theatre events
  • Wheeler Opera House events (Aspen Laff Festival, 7908 Aspen Songwriters Festival, 22nd Annual Aspen Shortsfest)
  • The Sardy House Tree Lighting
  • Aspen Institute events
  • Aspen Art Museum activities
  • Aspen Santa Fe Ballet performances
  • USPA World Snow Polo Championship
  • New Years Eve (Somewhere around town)
  • Theatre Aspen presentations
  • Wintersköl 2012
  • ESPN Winter X Games 17
  • Aspen Music Festival winter shows
(Details and even more Aspen Colorado activities and events are listed here)

Just as with the spring and summer seasons, I know I probably won’t be able to make all the activities and events listed above, but I’ll sure give it a try.
