THE ASPEN LEGEND:
LEGEND SAYS….”Ute Indians were the original settlers of the valley where Aspen resides. The Utes considered the valley sacred because of the powerful mountains, the intersecting river forces as well as the natural beauty and spirit. Legend has it that the Utes put a curse on the white man when he took over the town during the silver mining boom of the late 1800s. If the miners wanted the Ute’s land so badly, then they were cursed to never be able to leave the land – and if they did they would always return. Sleeping in the shadow of Mount Sopris, one would fall prey to the curse of the Utes.”
The curse must be true because I never want to leave!
