The Grottos by Aspen

The Grottos are right on Highway 82 as you go over Independence Pass. You can park at the day use area where there are some picnic tables (and restrooms) then walk around over the usual rock formations which look sort of like the rocks melted – unique to this place – and sit by the Cascade waterfall. The Roaring Fork river comes down through here on its way to Aspen about 15 minutes drive away. I took two of these pictures in June with exceptionally high runoff – very spectacular, and then the other two in September – calm and peaceful…

About Bronwyn

Hi. I moved to the Aspen area from Australia in 1997 and have a daughter born right here in Aspen in 2000. I teach skiing (for the past eighteen seasons) and am a Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Völkers Roaring Fork.. I love to ski, snowboard, horse-ride, raft, and hike with our dog Sheila. This valley offers so much and one day I may also take up golf or fishing!
