Aspen, Co. was also known as the Shining Mountains to the Ute Indians, who were the first known residents of Aspen. The first prospectors crossed over the mountains from Leadville in the spring of 1897 and settled in the camp they called Ute City. By 1879, a number of hopeful prospectors had settled in the camp and in the summer of 1880, the town (which had grown to 300 residents) was renamed Aspen for the abundance of aspen trees in the area.

Today Aspen is consistently rated one of the world's top ski areas. There's something here for everyone, from challenging ski slopes to wine tasting and opera, from hot dog carts to haute cuisine with activities ranging from fly-fishing to llama trekking.
