Fireworks Over Aspen

Fireworks for the Food & Wine Classic illuminate the ridge of Shadow Mountain.

Feelin’ the need to celebrate Opening Day for the 2008 ski season here in Aspen, and of course, Thanksgiving!  So, I thought I’d share a photo of fireworks from Food & Wine last year… which, coincidentally rang in the last day of the phenomenal ‘07 ski season.  The Aspen Mountain ski area re-opened for the weekend of The Food & Wine Classic last year, because we still had SO much snow up there!

I was just outside town, right by the Maroon Creek golf course, so the fireworks lit up the Shadow Mountain ridgeline very nicely here.
