In October 1976, I participated in the Global Education planning conference at the Aspen Institue in Aspen, Colorado. It was chaired by Francis Keppel, one of the best known U.S. Commissioners of Education. 

After the session, we took an extra day to hike "The Bells."

In September 2004, I visited Maroon Bells again. It is a special place for me.
