DeWolf takes delight in his fountain of secrets

I was trying to explain to guests who made the Dancing Fountain and that the water pattern was random, based on a computer program (advanced for its day) etc.
While searching for more details, I found this lovely article in the The Aspen Times about Nick DeWolf one of its creator. Enjoy.

During the planning for the Aspen Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan, the community expressed a strong desire to have an east/west connection on the north side of town that is safer for bicyclists and pedestrians. That is coming to fruition on August 12 when Hallam Street will become a ped/bikeway between 7th Street and Aspen Street. Learn more about the project at an open house July 31 and come to our ribbon cutting on August 12.

The techniques employed in aikido are subtle yet effective. Aikido embraces the Aspen Idea of integration of mind, body and spirit. Beginners and all levels of students are welcome to learn this joyful, flowing art.

Say hi to Santos when you see him on the Mall!

Meet Santos Marquez. If you've ever thought, who should I thank for cleaning up downtown Aspen? The answer is Santos. He's in charge of the downtown crew that refinishes the benches, rakes the mall, removes stickers from signs and trash cans, cleans up downed trees and pine cones, cleans the bathrooms, and empties the trash. Aspen has 140 trash cans downtown and in outlying parks. That's a lot of work. In the core alone, Santos and his crew empty the trash 5-6 times a day. They always do it with a smile and a great attitude. We are so grateful to have Santos and his crew. #aspenparksandopenspace Aspen Parks & Recreation
