Maroon Bells, Aspen

Maroon Bells, Aspen, Colorado: Maroon Lake (9,580′) provides one of the most memorable scenes in the Rockies. The lake occupies a basin that was sculpted by Ice-Age glaciers and later dammed by landslide and rockfall debris from the steep slopes above the valley floor. The Maroon Bells is a mountain in the Elk Mountains that consists of two peaks, South Maroon Peak and North Maroon Peak, separated by about a third of a mile. The mountain is on the border between Pitkin County and Gunnison County, Colorado, United States, about 12 miles southwest of Aspen. Both peaks are counted as fourteeners.

Ski Arapahoe Basin

Arapahoe Basin is a renowned ski area for alpine skiing high in the Colorado Rockies. The A-Basin East Wall has a summit elevation of 13,050 feet (3977m), making it the highest skiable terrain in North America. Due to its high altitude (at tree line) and its mostly north to northeast face, the Basin remains open for skiing much longer than most Colorado resorts, and often starts earlier as well. Arapahoe Basin is known for a clientele of hardcore, yet relaxed folks that like simply to ski and avoid the glamour associated with resorts like Aspen, Colorado. It sometimes stays open until July, though recent management has opted to close the resort earlier despite complaints from locals.

GLIMPSE – the talents of the autism community

They are painters, sculptors and photographers; poets and storytellers; musicians and creators of amazing video games. They are kids, teens and adults. Last year, a new online publication arose to celebrate the talents of autistic individuals and other developmental disabilities: GLIMPSE, offered by ICDL (The Interdisciplinary Council of Developmental and Learning Disorders). In late 2008, Volume 2 of GLIMPSE was released, and was expanded into a print book and notecards. The works are serious, humourous, deeply personal and illuminating. See it for yourself, share it with others, submit your own/your child’s work for inclusion in Volume 3, to release later this year. Find information and ordering details at www.icdl.com

Dear Readers ~ Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a safe and happy 2011. Taking an indefinite break from the News in its current format as am undertaking some exciting new travel/education plans over the next 3 years. Will possibly provide a smaller scale News Roundup from Feb 1st (Tues – Fri), as time allows. Hope life is treating you well and that this Christmas remains as calm, peaceful and enjoyable as possible for you and yours.


Take Care,

Julie
