The Hippie Cowboy's Last Ride...

In life beyond the academics that colleges could only to hope to rival, a group of people may influence your life beyond measure.  This book is as much yours, as it is my family's legacy.
From the very first year I was on staff, in letters and in notes; an attempt was made to record happenings and tales.  So many stories rippled through the years, and some morphed beyond initial recognition. 
Aspen Shadows, Twilight Trails was concieved more years ago  than is willingly admitted, and has only recently made its way to print.
