Join Road Scholar and revel in the pioneer spirit of Snowmass and Aspen, Colo., as we bring together lifelong learners from around the country amid spectacular scenery and the changing fall colors of the Colorado Rockies. This celebration of learning and adventure will combine museums, expert lectures, hikes, jeep adventures, river rafting and even a balloon festival! Enrich your experience with lectures by local experts about the history of the area, challenges to the natural environment and the most extensive archaeological dig in U.S. history — plus delight in a final dinner together while you enjoy an entertaining and educational cap to your week in beautiful Snowmass and Aspen.
