In the 60s the family took a vacation at Aspen. One evening we went to Toklat for dinner. In this recording from around 1968 Mal and Jo remember Stuart Mace the owner of Toklat at Aspen, now part of the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies. Mal always had an admiration for mountaineers and fondly remembered meeting Stuart. Back then Stuart keep a dog sled team and took tourists out for day trips or longer.
Toklat has been preserved and is now part of the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies. Their mission statement is:
ACES’ mission is to inspire a life-long commitment to the earth by educating for environmental responsibility, conserving and restoring the balance of natural communities, and advancing the ethic that the earth must be respected and nurtured.
