The drive was really beautiful, and for anyone that has the time to get to
I arrived in Aspen around 4:30 in the afternoon, met up with my sister who gave me the key to our hotel room (we were staying at the Hotel Aspen, I have also included a review on this) so I could settle in, and then I went back to where she was working; a really neat place called the Given Institute, that has a beautiful backyard and some gardens that overlooks some amazing scenery, and some very fancy houses. (Apparently owned by celebrities, but I have no idea which ones; they were pretty, though!)
Then we went out to dinner with some of her co-workers, to a place called "Elevation". The atmosphere was cool, but the food only ok; I've included a review.
After dinner, we took a beautiful walk back to the motel, and it was time for bed!
