A must for John Denver fans visiting Aspen. It's quite peaceful to walk through the sanctuary with the river as background music, reading various inspiring John Denver lyrics cast in stone. You'll leave feeling uplifted.

John Denver Sanctuary is a beautiful, quiet and contemplative space right in Aspen. The sanctuary is a wonderful place to bring a picnic lunch, watch the river, do yoga, or just contemplate the beauty of Aspen.

I would suggest contacting Willie Hoevers, who is also making plans for the 20th anniversary of John Denver's death. Willie is also on Facebook. My wife Diane tells me she knows you from Facebook. We live up in Wisconsin.
