Twin Lakes, Independence Pass, and Aspen

Twin Lakes is just down the road from Turquoise Lake and located on Independence Pass, before it gets bad.  Campsites are not as pretty as Turquoise Lake but functional.  Same water.  Hard to fill a tank but they did have a good spigot at the dump station.  We got parked then headed over the pass to see Aspen.

There is a ghost town there called Independence Village.  They are trying to preserve it and eventually do a dig there if the money is ever available.  Really neat!
