A Woody Creek sunset
Some people come to Aspen for the glitz and glam, but for Margaret Wilson Reckling, it was the opposite. She moved from Texas to Aspen 10 years ago, then moved to Woody Creek five years after that, to return to the land. There, she started photographing the natural scenes unfolding around her. Woody Creek: Views from a Homestead ($60, Big Sky Publishing), out in June, is a pictorial reflection of her time and the 1885 homesteaders’ lives there, where remoteness doesn’t mean lack of activity. She’ll share her experiences about this other side of Aspen and the ongoing efforts to preserve her historic homesite in public appearances starting in late June and continuing through August. ... The ongoing celebration of the Bauhaus centennial—honoring 100 years of the famed German design school, which had significant impact on the shape of Aspen—continues through summer with events and educational opportunities. Of course, one can just raise a glass and toast the birthday the good old-fashioned way: Aspen Brewing Company has released limited Bauhaus beers.
