The mountain nights in Aspen are unlike any other; the air is clean and crisp and the stars are amazingly bright. I would like to think it is because you are closer to the stars but I am sure it is just because there are fewer lights to obstruct your view. I like to lay a blanket on the ground and star gaze for hours. The vastness and clarity leaves you in awe and time just slips by without notice.
