A Road Trip To Aspen (9/04)

I took a trip over Independence Pass to see several family members staying in Aspen and to take in Jazz Aspen Snowmass.  JAS was decent although I only saw one evening.  I later read that Cake infuriated the mostly VIP section of the audience and played a late night set in a downtown club.  Weather was rainy and cool with torrential downpours.  I tried my hand at fly fishing the Roaring Fork twice coming up with nothing but numb toes.  There was also a beach volleyball tournament that weekend so I took in a match mostly to watch the women empty wet sand out of their spandex.  No photos of that, but see what I did capture below.
