Maroon Bells Aspen Colorado USA Anna Kate Legendary Adventures of Anna Hiking Backpacking SelfieWhen Anna Kate from the Legendary Adventures of Anna contacted me and told me she was swinging through my neck of the woods I was truly ecstatic!  

It took me a little while to figure out exactly what I could show her about the area and what it had to offer.  What was the best way to make her fall in love with the beauty of Aspen just as I had 4 years ago when I first traveled here?  

Well, why not explore the backcountry!  

After all, that’s where I first decided that Aspen would be the perfect place to set up base.  Between the limitless amount of outdoor activities, unspoiled terrain and friendly faces downtown, this was literally one of the best places I’ve ever stepped foot in; regardless of how different it was between hiking in the summer or snowboarding in the winter.

But I digress; enjoy this photo essay of all the shenanigans we got into while getting a locals tour of Aspen, Colorado, USA!
