Aspen Peak - - Without Whom -

For 15 years, Margo, whose work has been pub­lished in The New York Times, Out­side, and Ski­ing, has writ­ten “The Aspen Princess,” her award-win­ning weekly col­umn in The Aspen Times. In “Aspen In­spired” (page 152), she de­scribes giv­ing her son the Roar­ing Fork child­hood of her dreams.

What have been your lat­est ad­ven­tures? After hav­ing a baby boy, ev­ery­thing is an ad­ven­ture—ev­ery­thing from rid­ing the Ajax gon­dola to bik­ing the Rio Grande Trail takes on a whole new mean­ing. What’s changed in the val­ley since you first ar­rived? At first, I loved that Aspen was so cos­mopoli­tan and that there was so much cul­ture (not to men­tion a hop­ping bar scene) in such a small moun­tain town. Now it’s more about rais­ing my son in the moun­tains. I have a whole new level of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the qual­ity of life we have in this val­ley.
