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.
