Aspen Shortsfest – Day 3
Thursday April 12 2012
Catch up on some sleep this morning before catching the Gondola up to the top of Aspen Mountain. It’s a clear, bright, sunny day and the views of the mountains are superb.
In the mountain top restaurant we meet up with a mob of other filmmakers and enjoy some great conversations over beer and food. We all go for a short walk in the snow, take a few obligatory tourist photos, and catch the last gondola down before the storm arrives.
After more really excellent film screenings, we leave the Wheeler to find a lovely light frosting of snow on the trees, cars, bicycles etc.
The altitude makes it hard to get to sleep at night – I keep waking up gasping for air! Hopefully the body will adjust quickly!
