The Colorado Rockies surrounding Aspen are the BIG BOY mountains. 2nd homeowners and tourists tend to forget that our "hood" can be extreme and unforgiving. Travel into and out of Aspen is never easy. Snow, wind, lightning, a short runway, A-Town is not the most convenient resort in the Torah. Even summer-time flights can be "kinda bumpy".
Late last night there was a rock-slide on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon closing the road between Aspen and Denver. The humongous slide shut down a major U.S. travel artery... indefinitely. This was no ordinary road delay. One eyewitness described rocks "the size of a semi-trailer" smashing down on a beautiful and super-curvey slice of Interstate 70 outside of Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
Cabin Fever-- yeah its real. Check these pix courtesy of CDOT. We're stuck inside of Aspen... with the rock slide blues again. I-70 is closed man.
