Anyone with knowledge about Aspen, Colorado
I am planning a cross country trip from the end of June to July 2010. I want to wind up in Aspen-Snowmass for a medical conference in late July. I want to camp to save money. I see on Google maps that a National Forest surrounds the area. I am used to going up fire roads to camp in the NF for free. But if you inspect the satellite view of this area there are some huge mansions located deep in the mountains west of Aspen-Snowmass well within the National Forest. What's up with this?
Has anyone done any guerilla camping in the National Forest west of Snowmass? I really don't want to have to camp 15 miles into the forest just to get away from Bill Gates or Madonna.
