Last Monday, our Aspen Music Festival IDs allowed us a free ride up Aspen Mountain on the gondola, where I learned that I'm actually not as good with heights as I thought, that the gondola carriages rock when you move around inside them, and that panic is contagious, particularly when 4 people are stuck in a confined space together for 10 minutes at a few dozen metres above ground. There was quite the view at the top though, as well as a restaurant and lots of hula hoops to play with. It was a fun time, particularly for the 3 of our company who are DSLR hobbyists. As we whipped out our Nikons, our remaining friend suddenly found himself surrounded by geeks and wasn't too chuffed about it. Sorry, mate!
