THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

with ANDREW TRAVERS

CLASSICAL MUSIC IN ONE OF THE MOST highly anticipated events of the summer, the Aspen Music Festival and School will host a semi-staged production of Verdi’s opera “Aidia” at the Benedict Music Tent on Friday, Aug. 7. The epic about ancient Egypt is a signature entry in the “Dreams of Travel” season theme. Conducted by Robert Spano, the festival’s music director, it will include professionals singing alongside students from the Aspen Opera Theater Center and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra Chorus. The lead soprano in “Aida” is Tamara Wilson, a Music School alumni. Since she was cast in the Aspen production, Wilson was selected to serve as an understudy in the same role at the Metropolitan Opera. When the lead dropped out before the winter season debut at the Met, Wilson stepped into it on opera’s biggest American stage to soaring reviews. Sharing a lead with the Met is a coup for the festival. “We said [last summer], ‘She is going to be a true Verdi soprano and a big star in the repertoire,’” says Aspen Music Festival president and CEO Alan Fletcher. “So we thought, ‘Why don’t we ask her to learn that role, which is going to be a great role for her?’ We were smarter than we thought. … We’re patting ourselves on the back for having called this one.” The show is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $85 to $100 and available at the Wheeler Opera House box office and www. aspenmusicfestival.com.

Soprano Tamara Wilson leads the cast of singers in the Aspen Music Festival and School’s production of Verdi’s “Aida.”

CURRENTEVENTS POPULAR MUSIC Lizz Wright will perform at the JAS Cafe at the Aspen Art Museum on Friday, Aug. 7 and Saturday, Aug. 8.

Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal will perform at the Aspen District Theatre on Friday, Aug. 7 and Saturday, Aug. 8.

DANCE JAZZ SINGER Lizz Wright will perform four shows over two nights at the JAS Café at the Aspen Art Museum on Aug. 7 and 8. The singer, blending jazz, folk, gospel and R&B, has enjoyed both critical and commercial success since her 2003 debut album “Salt.” Her most recent record is this year’s “Freedom & Surrender,” which includes covers of Nick Drake and the Bee Gees along with originals like “Lean In.” Set times are 7 and 9:15 p.m. Tickets on sale at www.jazzaspensnowmass.org. A dinner option is available for the early shows.

LES BALLETS JAZZ DE MONTREAL comes to the Aspen District Theatre for three performance over two nights, Aug. 7 and 8, as part of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s summer season. The contemporary dance group, known as a “feel good company,” works with a repertoire of today’s leading international choreographers — not unlike Aspen Santa Fe. The company’s program for Aspen includes a duet by the French choreographer Benjamin Millepied (best known in American pop culture as Mr. Natalie Portman), “Harry,” by the acclaimed Israeli-American choreographer Barak Marshall and “Rouge,” by Brazil’s Rodrigo Pedemerias. Tickets for the two 8 p.m. performances range from $25 to $74 and are available at the Wheeler Opera House box office and www.aspensantafeballet.com. A third, kidfriendly performance is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 8 at 4 p.m.

THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

with JOHN COLSON

Let them all dive into the Trump political dump TONIGHT (as of publication day of this column, Aug. 6) the Republican Party will hold the first candidate debate of the 2016 election season, hosted by Fox News, Facebook and the Republican Party itself, in the city where I was born, Cleveland, Ohio, which also will host the party’s national convention next year. The many absurdities that will accompany this “debate” into history are too manifold, too outrageous, to list without the risk of putting readers into a collective coma induced by fear and doubt. But I can’t help myself. First off, the fact that the debate is being held in Ohio makes me very suspicious. I’ve got no inherent bias against Cleveland, you understand, since I took my first independent breath there and since it is home to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, an institution that I revere simply because it enshrines the music that made my youth so very interesting. But Ohio, unfortunately, also is the state where in 2004 election chicanery — including voter suppression and electoral misinformation aimed at Democrats and minorities — gave the state to The Shrub, also known as George W. Bush, and cemented the national election in his favor. Among other electoral maladies, Ohio in 2004 used the same punch-card ballots that, four years earlier, are widely believed to have been deliberately miscounted in Florida. The Florida results were so messed up that it was left to the U.S. Supreme Court to decide the outcome, and we all can remember how well that went. Ohio’s then-Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, a devout Republican, did his best to suppress the votes of Democrats and minorities in 2004, just as Katherine Harris did in Florida in 2000. Ohio went for Bush that year, though by a margin nowhere near as slim as the 537 votes in Florida’s 2000 election, and critics of the Ohio electoral donnybrook still maintain that Blackwell stole the election for Bush. Clearly, picking Ohio as the site for this debate was intended to have a symbolic impact, at least. And the message to those who view the Republican presidential field as nothing but a gathering of clowns is this: “We (the GOP) cheated the electorate here in ‘04, and we’re pretty sure we can do it again.” Moving on, the selection of contestants who will appear at this “debate” was to be based on national political polls taken on Tuesday, two days prior to the “debate”

and one day later than my deadline for this column, so I’m not sure who will be there as I write this. But it appears that the head clown, Donald Trump, will make the cut, based on his lead in the polls over the weekend, one of which showed Trump ahead at 20 percent of likely Republican primary voters, followed by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 15 percent, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 13 percent, and on down the long line of hopefuls. It has been emphasized in news accounts of this circus that Fox News will be “the decider,” presumably about which polls to use to make this momentous decision and then picking the candidates who get to appear at the main event in Cleveland. Already, news about this decision has started sliding around like a car with bald tires meeting an oil slick at high speed. What started out as a firm “Top 10” among the polls has in recent days shifted to “the top 10 or so,” which is in keeping with my view that Fox News never met a fact it couldn’t undermine or completely ignore at its own internal behest. In any event, it appears at this point, on Monday, that Trump, Walker and Bush (sounds like a white-bread law firm) will be there, perhaps alongside Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie and John Kasich, at least according to the rankings in an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released early Monday morning. Naturally, as of the weekend, all eyes were on Trump, who inexplicably seems to rank the highest in the eyes of those willing to admit they will be voting in an upcoming Republican primary somewhere in this country. I’ve watched a few video clips of some of those voters, by the way, and it has left me with a slightly queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach. Some of these interviewees have actually said, with a straight face, that they like the way Trump thinks, and they like the things he has been saying. So, the lesson here seems to be that if you spout off with bigoted, selfaggrandizing and outright ignorant crap with enough consistency and regularity, you can win support from a huge percentage of Republican primary voters. Which many of Trump’s opponents have been doing, like political lemmings eager to dive into the same smelly pond with him, no matter what the cost to their integrity and credibility. Which, I guess, is all right by me.

LEGENDS & LEGACIES

FROM the VAULT

by TIM WILLOUGHBY

Len Shoemaker on horseback at the US Forest Ranger Station at Woody Creek, 1916.

LEN SHOEMAKER AND HIS EXPERIENCE ON ELECTRIC PASS Len Shoemaker came to the Roaring Fork Valley with his father

in 1885 at the age of 5. He left us a special gift, his book “Pioneers of The Roaring Fork.” Missing from that book is an incredible tale about him.

Shoemaker spent years late in life collecting stories about pioneer families of the valley. Many are about the Carbondale area where Hirum, his father, settled. Others are about residents of early Aspen. He knew most of the people whom he chronicled personally, and had met many through his dealings as district Forest Service supervisor. He interspersed clips he found in old newspapers, notes people sent him, and accounts from his personal memories. Shoemaker published two versions of his book, the last in 1965. He was one of the first to recognize that interest in Aspen’s past was growing at the same time that those knowledgeable about it were passing on. Shoemaker traveled the entire region on foot and horseback and came to know the area intimately. In his younger years he traveled from mine to mine. At an older age, he supervised the construction of trails we use today to access the

10

A S P E N T I M E S W E E K LY

F

backcountry. Building one of those trails, Electric Pass, nearly ended his life. In 1925, Shoemaker and six other men constructed the trail connecting Cathedral Lake to the Conundrum Hot Springs. They dubbed it the Panorama

hair-raising, for a different reason. The ridge between Cathedral Lake and Montezuma Basin is a mineralized zone, which holds some of the Aspen region’s highest-elevation mines. The pass crosses part of that mineralized zone. Anyone who has spent time on

THE RIDGE BETWEEN CATHEDRAL LAKE AND MONTEZUMA BASIN IS A MINERALIZED ZONE, WHICH HOLDS SOME OF THE ASPEN REGION’S HIGHEST-ELEVATION MINES. ANYONE WHO HAS SPENT TIME ON THAT RIDGE KNOWS THAT TINGLY FEELING WHEN STORMS PASS. ELECTRICITY ENLIVENS THE AIR. THERE IS A REASON IT IS CALLED ELECTRIC PASS. Trail, but we know it today as Electric Pass. The hot springs had become popular with tourists in the 1920s, so some people thought it would be good to connect from the springs to Ashcroft. It would be the highest trail in the national forest, at 13,500 feet, and offer a “hair-raising view.” The experience did indeed turn out to be

Aug u st 6 - Aug u st 1 2 , 2015

that ridge, as Shoemaker had, knows that tingly feeling when storms pass. Electricity enlivens the air. There is a reason it is called Electric Pass. Shoemaker, as a forest ranger, spent days on the trail. He rode one horse and brought a second one to carry his food and camping supplies. On a trip over the pass, he was struck

by lightning. The jolt knocked out some of his teeth and rendered him unconscious. Alone on the trail, he slipped in and out of consciousness. Recognizing he needed to get downslope, and unable to walk, he grabbed his horse’s tail. Fortunately his horse had not been affected by the lighting, had not run off, and wanted to head downhill, too. It took a long time to move down the trail with alternating lapses of consciousness. After some time Shoemaker regained his senses and was able to mount his horse, ride out, and seek medical attention. What’s more, he eventually wrote books that tell the adventures of others, though none is more harrowing than his own.

Tim Willoughby’s family story parallels Aspen’s. He began sharing folklore while teaching for Aspen Country Day School and Colorado Mountain College. Now a tourist in his native town, he views it with historical perspective. Reach him at redmtn2@comcast.net.

FISH TALE

1920 ASPEN

“NOBODY CAN FISH,” lamented the Aspen Democrat-Times on May 19, 1915. “The Democrat-Times is ever on the lookout for the welfare of its people, its patrons and citizens of Aspen and Pitkin County. Realizing that the law sets May 25th as the opening day of the fishing season your paper today phoned Game and Fish Commissioner Fraser in an effort to open fishing next Sunday, May 23, two days ahead, that our fishermen might enjoy the sport of angling for the big fellows a ‘leetle’ earlier than usual. However, Mr. Fraser stated that it would be impossible to waive the date and permit fishing next Sunday. So boys and men, you can’t fish until next Tuesday, May 25th. We are sorry, we did the best we could for you.” The photo above shows D.R.C. Brown with a young boy, Gordon McIntosh, at Hallam Lake, circa 1920. This photo and more can be found in the Aspen Historical Society archives at aspenhistory.org.

GEAR of the WEEK

by STEPHEN REGENOLD

LIGHT IT UP: NOKERO SOLAR LIGHT GET IT

$180 www.nokero.com

IT’S THE SIZE AND SHAPE of a large notebook computer and brighter than most of my camping lanterns. The sidewalls are plastic, hollow orange chambers that make it float. The W100 Solar Work Light is among the stranger products I have tested this year. It’s made by a Denver company, Nokero, which cites 1 million of its various lights distributed in more than 120 countries across the globe. My orange test unit, which costs about $180, was created for night fishermen in the developing world. This year, Nokero is looking to gain a toehold in the camping market. At 4.5 pounds and with a single function — to light up a large area — the Work Light is a niche product for outdoors use. It has a solar panel on back, and each day after a charge-up in the sun the LEDs on the flip side will blaze with clean, white light for hours. I tested it over a month camping and toying around in dark corners of my yard. The product pumps 300 lumens from a metal dome, which is

12

A S P E N T I M E S W E E K LY

F

Aug u st 6 - Aug u st 1 2 , 2015

more than enough illumination when mounted overhead to read, cook, and perform any task. Indeed, the company sells the light as a stand-in for medical clinics that are off the grid. Another use: Its utilitarian form factor, including threaded attachment points at each corner, make it mountable outdoors permanently like a street lamp in public spaces. During the day, the lithium iron phosphate battery recharges via the solar panel. It then automatically turns on at dark, a sensor on the unit keeping the LEDs off to save on battery life when the sun is up. I charged it outdoors in the July heat for half a day to get the internal battery to full. It then worked as a reliable white light switchable between three modes of brightness all night. The big, orange sidewalls serve as bumpers and protect the light if dropped. It is waterproof and made to be left outdoors in all weather. The company gives a two-year warranty but cites the internal battery will last under

continual use for five years. Nokero takes its name from an abbreviation of the words “no kerosene,” and that refers to its goal of replacing the gas-burning lamps in the developing world with solar and LED alternatives. It’s a noble cause, and I wish the company success with the Work Light, which it cites is as bright as 30 kerosene lamps. But for the average car camper, the product is overkill. At $180, the price is high, and there are numerous lanterns and outdoor lighting products that are cheaper or smaller to do the job. That said, its solar-charging feature could be a boon for anyone seeking a self-perpetuating source of light. Look at Nokero if you’re in need of bright light usable night after night far away from it all. Stephen Regenold writes about outdoors gear at www.gearjunkie.com.

WINEINK

AND THE WINNERS ARE ...

LOCAL RESTAURANTS MAKE WINE SPECTATOR AWARD LIST IT IS THE QUINTESSENTIAL list of lists. Since 1981, the august Wine Spectator magazine has devoted one issue each year to providing wine lovers with a compilation of “The World’s Greatest Wine Lists.” This year the August 31, 2015 issue, on newsstand now, honored 3,617 restaurants across the fifty states and 75 countries with KELLY J. inclusion in its HAYES three-tiered Awards program. Notable is that Aspen’s Element 47 restaurant at The Little Nell once again attained recognition as a top tier “Grand Award” winner. It is one of just 81 restaurants in the United States to do so. This is the 19th consecutive year that the restaurant in the Little Nell has achieved the top shelf rating, acknowledging its role as one the worlds most esteemed wine-centric restaurants . “Having the Grand Award at The Little Nell is extremely important for us here,” said Wine Director Carlton McCoy whose smiling face appears in the current Wine Spectator issue. “As a company culture, we always want to be counted amongst the greatest hotels in the world. Along with hotel accolades such as Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond, the Grand Award ranks us amongst the greatest wine programs in the world.” Also represented on the list with the “Best of Award of Excellence” are Aspen’s Ellina, which, under Wine Director Jill Carnevale, inspires diners each night with a program that features the best of Italy and California, and Jimmy’s, An American Restaurant and Bar. Mezzaluna and Rustique Bistro in Aspen, and Glenwood Springs’ Juicy Lucy’s Steakhouse, will hang the “Award of Excellence” certificates rounding out the half-dozen Roaring Fork Valley restaurants to be recognized. Ninety five restaurants made the list in Colorado, and Boulder’s The Flagstaff House, is the only other Grand Award winner in the state.

There are three levels of awards given by the Wine Spectator. The Grand Award, which, according to the magazine’s criteria, rewards a restaurant’s “uncompromising, passionate devotion to the quality of their wine program,” is bestowed upon just 2% of the reviewed restaurants and is the highest honor a wine list can receive. Winners will generally have 1,500 selections or more and strict attention is paid to the breadth of top producers represented, the depth in mature vintages (verticals) and superior organization, presentation and wine service. It is a lofty achievement. The “Best of Award of Excellence” is given to lists that, though outstanding, don’t quite meet the standards of the elite. And the final tier, the “Award of Excellence,” is for those restaurants that are serious about providing a solid consumer wine experience but may be limited in either size or selection. Marvin R. Shanken, the Editor and Publisher of the Wine Spectator, said in a release announcing this year’s winners, “We hope wine lovers will use this issue, alongside WineSpectator. com’s Restaurant Awards database, as guides to finding the perfect restaurant for any occasion.” Indeed, I often turn to the free access online Spectator dining guide when in a city I don’t know to find their recommendations for restaurants. Generally a place that cares enough about their wine list to be an award winner also has a kitchen that sweats the details. The Spectator Awards are valuable not just for consumers but for the restaurants that are honored as well. “This award attracts the great wine collectors and drinkers of the world,” said McCoy about Element 47’s Grand Award. But it goes beyond just getting more diners and drinkers in the restaurant. “This is obviously a serious tool we utilize when recruiting a young, ambitious food and beverage staff who are looking to be a part of something great. Before I moved here the only thing I knew about Aspen was that The Little Nell had a Grand Award.

Aug u st 6 - Aug u st 1 2 , 2015

It carries that much weight.” The Nell’s remarkable, nearly two decade long run on the top rung of the ladder has come under a number of different names and a number of different wine directors. In 1997, when it was first recognized, it was simply The Restaurant Room at the Little Nell. It morphed into Montagna in 2000 and, in 2012, transformed once again to become Element 47. In that time wine legends have been born. Some, including Master Sommeliers like Bobby Stuckey (whose restaurant, Frasca Food and Wine, in Boulder is a Best of Award of Excellence designate), Jonathan Pullis (CEO of Chefs Club USA) and Sabato Sagaria (Chief Restaurant Officer for Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group in NYC) have gone on to other esteemed positions in the hospitality industry while leaving a legacy behind for others to follow. That legacy is now the responsibility of Master Sommelier McCoy and a wine staff that includes advanced sommelier Nick Barb. Clearly it, and the 18,000 bottles of wine that reside at Element 47, are in good hands indeed. Congratulation to all of those restaurants that were recognized.

UNDER THE INFLUENCE ROBERT MONCUIT CUVÉE ELEMENT 47, LES MESNIL-SUR-OGER CHAMPAGNE NV There is no better way to toast success than with a glass of this Champagne, made exclusively for Element 47. 100% Chardonnay from a house that has roots in the Champagne region that go back five generations.

FOOD WITH A VIEW

ASPEN’S MOST CONTROVERSIAL STRUCTURE BOASTS SOME OF THE BEST TABLES IN TOWN

SAY WHAT YOU WILL about the $45 million Aspen Art Museum (AAM), which opened a year ago to a flurry of public ridicule, consensus is clear: The roof deck of the 33,000-square-foot structure boasts some of the best tables in town. The SO Café — named for a free-flowing Japanese brushstroke in a nod to the modern, Shigeru AMANDA RAE Ban-designed woodenlattice cube — is, in a way, the most impressive rotating exhibition at the museum, which has no permanent collection and ongoing free admission. First is the breezy, 57-step stairway that leads to a panoramic view of Aspen Mountain, the gondola appearing like a faraway play set in a lush Colorado dreamscape. Then there’s the dining area, open six days a week for lunch: sprawling, bright, and calm, with widely spaced seating for 75 guests or more. Combined with a tight menu of fresh, locally sourced fare that evolves every week, SO (pronounced so) in the Andrea and James Gordon Café has become the most buzzedabout spot for business meetings and leisurely lunches alike. “It’s not just an amenity at the museum but a destination in town,” says Allen Domingos, co-owner with his wife, Julia, of Epicure Catering, which has partnered with AAM to prepare food at SO. “When people come into the café, once they see the layout and the view, they become instant fans. People linger — it has a feel where you can open a computer and sit there an hour, two hours, and you don’t have people right on top of you. This is the living room of town.” The cool, relaxed ambiance is an ideal foil for the food, the other reason why locals return on the regular. Chef Julia Domingos’

seasonal menu, which might include a grilled chicken and Olathe corn quesadilla ($14); salad of local greens and chèvre with Colorado cherries, walnuts, and wild rice ($12); or burrata with Palisade peaches, heirloom tomatoes, and house-made lavosh crackers ($12) — hasn’t duplicated itself since the café opened. Popular offerings have included an organic salmon BLT, turkey Reuben, soba noodle salad with charred beef tenderloin and fiery peanuts, and homemade soups such as Indian spiced carrot and gazpacho. Most appreciated by a hypercritical diner like myself is the fact that every plate, while balanced with a plethora of interesting ingredients and textures, is pretty as well. A recent salad of shredded and chopped vegetables — cabbage, carrot, corn, avocado, tomatoes — with pecans and Avalanche Cheese Midnight Blue arrived to the table as a miniature tableau: speckled with vibrant green drops of herb oil and a shaved watermelon radish flower. “[Chef Julia] makes her plates like the most beautiful piece of art,” says Mary Daly, SO Café manager. “Julia was a dancer — she trained as a ballerina, though she probably wouldn’t tell you that. She’s very artistic in everything she does. Every time we clear the table there’s nothing left on the plate.” The Domingos collaborate with other artisanal purveyors, too: Basalt’s Rock Canyon Coffee supplies caffeinated beverages (and hosts the occasional espresso tasting); flaky croissants are imported from Franck Thirion French Pastry in the ABC just a few miles down Highway 82. (Though the stuff of local legend already, the flaky pastries are even better with chef Julia’s Palisade peach butter or blueberry-vanilla bean jam.) Sodas, Pellegrino, and a dozen kinds of bottled beer and wines by the glass are available also.

Aug u st 6 - Aug u st 1 2 , 2015

Even the Kids Plate ($8) — challah grilled cheese with Irish cheddar (adults may add ham and Creole mustard for a few bucks more) served with fresh watermelon and a housemade s’mores bar — is carefully considered. “We wanted to do something different, not just a sandwich or salad place,” Allen Domingos says. “We knew the menu would have to be small and limited with the cooking constraints. Being on the top floor of the museum, they didn’t put in a full-blown commercial kitchen because they didn’t want open flames and cooking and frying fumes.” So the couple preps much of the food offsite at the Epicure Catering commercial kitchen just five blocks away, finishing plates on the open line in the café’s roughly 300-square-foot production space. Customers order at the counter, pickup water and silverware, and await delivery of their meal to the table. “We were most inspired by what Danny Meyer did at MoMA in New York,” says Allen, of the yearplus he and his wife spent traveling

to museums around the U.S. and in Europe before opening SO. “The open-kitchen feel of the fifth level café — it’s stuck in the middle of the museum. They’re serving thousands and thousands of meals a day with no full kitchen and no back-of-house.” What’s more, SO is the beneficiary of eclectic entertainment programming on the AAM roof deck and sculpture garden: JAS Café performances (Aug. 7-8 and Aug. 13-14), Aspen Music Festival and School’s Music with a View series (Aug. 11 and Aug. 18), and Movies at the Museum (Aug. 21 and Sept. 25). “It’s become a big community center,” Daly says. Still, unlike other corner cafés in town, SO is still relatively mellow — for now. “Some people said they forgot about this place because we’re two blocks down and three flights up,” Daly quips. “You don’t just pass by. You have to make an effort to get there.” It’s definitely worth the 57 steps. amandaraewashere@gmail.com

GUNNER’S LIBATIONS

PITCHER MICHELADAS When a story came over The Associated Press wire the other day reminding me that “a summer party is no time for mixing individual cocktails. That’s what’s called a buzzkill,” I knew it was a must-read, as there’s nothing more annoying than waiting in line for a drink when there’s a chair in the sun or a game on the lawn that’s calling your name. And, much to my delight, the story — which featured several “pitcher” drinks — included a recipe for one of my favorite summertime (or rough Sunday morning) drinks: the Michelada. This one is pretty straightforward, which makes it simply perfect for summer parties. No buzzkill here. Libations was created by beloved Aspen Times publisher, Gunilla Asher, who passed away June 2 of last year after a brave battle with cancer. Cheers — to Gunner!

ASPEN UNTUCKED

by JESSICA LUCAS

A summer at The Aspen Institute offered the writer countless chances to expand her thinking.

STRETCH YOUR BRAIN

HOW ONE KANSAS NATIVE IMMERSED HERSELF IN AN ASPEN-BASED INTERNATIONAL NONPROFIT IT WAS FOUR SUMMERS ago that I first came to the illustrious ski town I’d long heard entertained the rich and famous. In preparation of my first visit, I took to google to discover how I might spend my time. There happened to be an event called the Ideas Festival. I was much too late to register for the full session, but thankfully there were public sessions and JESSICA a few still had tickets LUCAS remaining. I purchased a ticket to the fracking debate (highly relevant as fracking in my home state of Kansas was rampant) and a ticket to a luncheon featuring women leaders from across the globe. To say I enjoyed each was an understatement. I did many things that week in Pitkin County, but my brain kept going back to those events and the hosting organization, The Aspen Institute. As luck would have it, the columnist I’m writing in place of today is my friend Barbara. She moved to Aspen just a few months after my first visit and welcomed me as a frequent visitor. I’d coordinate my trips around events happening at the Institute, but I was never here long enough to do all the things I longed to do.

PHOTO BY JESSICA LUCAS

Fortunately, I had the opportunity this summer to escape the blistering Kansas heat and join the staff of The Aspen Institute during their busy summer season. The summer has not disappointed. Since my arrival, I’ve spent the bulk of my time on the grounds of the Institute campus soaking in as much of the dialogue as time allows. I joked that only in Aspen would one find themselves on the dance floor alongside David Brooks and Lupe Fiasco, but more seriously, only at The Aspen Institute does one have the opportunity to hear from our country’s and the world’s foremost leaders on a variety of topics from entertainment and politics to education and national security. I’ve been most impacted this summer by the Security Forum discussions on national security issues. FBI Director James Comey, NSA Director Admiral Michael Rogers, Director of National Intelligence General James Clapper, and United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch each spoke to specific issues within their agencies, but ISIS and its infiltration through social media channels was a recurring theme in every talk. Many of you reading I’m willing to guess are regular users of social media. Like me, you use your

accounts for sharing life updates, posting photos, following breaking news, and simply connecting with family, friends, and acquaintances. Yet lurking among social media users are cunning terrorists finding a myriad of ways to manipulate vulnerable users (80 percent under the age of 30) to commit terrorist acts. It was very clear in each of the four discussions that social media sites are the choice recruiting tool for today’s terrorists. Yet social media companies remain reluctant to engage more heavily in helping identify and eliminate users with terroristic intentions. I spent a lot of time thinking about this as I left each session. What responsibility do our social media companies have to help address the infiltration of terrorist activity through their sites? It’s been said that some of the companies are trying, but simply don’t know how to shut the activity down. Yet since I heard these dialogues, Twitter announced they were going after Twitter users who tweeted jokes without attributing them to the original author of the joke. As a writer, I’m glad to see this. Plagiarism of any kind, even a 140 character joke, is unacceptable. But it begs the question: If Twitter can sift through thousands of tweets and weed out the stolen jokes,

they surely can find a way to work in tangent with our government agencies to identify and shutdown social media users promoting terrorism. This has to become a priority. My hope is that at next year’s Security Forum sessions, we’ll learn social media companies have collaborated with our government to crack down on terrorist users. In the meantime, I’m going to continue to follow along as my interest was certainly piqued by the presentations of Director Comey, Admiral Rogers, General Clapper, and Attorney General Lynch. If you missed these talks, you can find them online at www. aspeninstitute.org. And there’s still several impressive speakers slated to speak at the Institute before the summer’s end. I hope to find you alongside me for this Friday’s discussion with General David Petraeus. Take a break from hiking and biking and stretch your brain a bit. No summer is complete without time spent learning in Aspen. Jessica is a Kansas native happily transplanted to the Roaring Fork Valley for at least the summer ... She can be reached at jessicajo@ gmail.com. Barbara will be back next week with her usual column.

VOYAGES

DESTINATION | THE WEST

A HUNDRED MILES OF MUD

MOUNTAIN BIKE TOURING THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE THE NEVADA RANCHER stomped toward me across a field of new spring hay. He was wearing a flat-brimmed straw sombrero, cotton sweatshirt, jeans, and kneehigh waders. “What can I do for you?” he asked with a quizzical smile. “Well, can you tell us where we are?” I asked, standing at the edge of his field in bike shorts, rain jacket and helmet — all heavily spattered with mud. “That’s easy,” he said. “You’re in the middle of nowhere!” And that’s just where Graeme, Tait and I wanted to be. Our traditional spring mountain bike tour is all about remoteness. To get there we consult the Dark Sky Map of the western U.S., looking for the blackest, most empty landscapes – places where the land is as open as the heavens above. Here we were in one of the blackest skies in the western U.S. asking a Nevada rancher where we were and how we we’re going to get out.

LIKE SNAILS AT BONNEVILLE We had saddled up for this tour just west of the famed Bonneville Salt Flats. Our rigid frame bikes were ridiculously weighted down with panniers bulging with food, water and camp gear. My son, Tait, was along for this, his second tour with Graeme and me. Like the Three Horsemen of the Apocalypse we pedaled off on a gravel road between the Silver Island Mountains and the famed speedway. On one side was the glimmering white salt of the speedway. On the other stood a range of desert mountains cragging up to the west. We camped that night at the edge of a huge dry lakebed, or playa, staking tents over polished river rocks where we watched the stars gather into a smear of glitter. Wind came up late and buffeted our tents, which flapped like luffing sails in a typhoon until we anchored them with heavy boulders.

Early the next morning we launched from our camp out across the playa. Our tires broke through a thin salt crust as we pedaled toward the looming Pilot Mountains, 10 miles away. The glistening salt rime reflected a warming sun that sent heat waves shimmering into the desert air. On the heels of a rising breeze came a dark line of clouds from the southwest. The tailwind was fine, but a portent was brewing. We were relieved to reach the other shore before it hit.

A MUDDY DIVIDE TO ALMO, IDAHO The coming storm whipped clouds of salt off the playa as it pushed us north to a unique oasis. A small pond surrounded by huge cottonwoods is a remnant of the steam engines of the Transcontinental Railroad. Water was piped there from mountain snow melt over a century ago, creating a vibrant, song-filled bird sanctuary.

We filtered several liters of water at this historic site, near Promontory Point, where in 1869 east met west and the rail linkage was announced to the world in one telegraphed word: “Done!” That night we set up camp off a quiet dirt road in the lee of a granite outcrop jutting from the sagebrush plains. A small overhang of rock offered us scant shelter as rain pelted down and the whiskey flask was passed. The next morning storm clouds chased us north to Grouse Creek Junction where a stoic red brick school house stands with a sign – 1875. This small ranching community, rimmed by desert mountains, boasts: “A Place Like No Other.” A small country store provided candy bars and a can of beef stew that we gobbled down under a tin roof at the fairgrounds. The air chilled, the wind picked up, and the brunt of the storm hit with soaking force. Onward was rode, heads down, blinking against the rain and spattering mud. We pushed our bikes over a long pass, then swooped down to a crossroads called Lynn where just one building stood. We topped another pass and rolled into the metropolis of Almo, Idaho. Population: 100.

THROUGH THE CITY OF ROCKS Soaked, chilled and starved, we gulped down a hot dinner at the Almo Inn, reserved a room for the night, and rode off through the rain to the local hot springs where we thawed out with a long soak. We spent the next two days at our room at the Inn watching incessant rain turn to snow in the nearby City of Rocks, a National Reserve known as a rock climbing mecca studded with granite spires. The historic California Trail passed through here in the 1840s. Long ago visitors marked the rocks with charcoal graffiti seen today. After two days of waiting, but with no break in the weather, we followed the Emigrant Trail up into a broad valley hemmed in by high ridges. Granite Pass was our crux move, as it had been for the emigrants, and we reached the

summit just as a thunder clap shook our world and the rain intensified. Committed to now to a long southern route of over 100 miles, we slipped and skidded down greasy twotracks into Goose Creek. Here we met the friendly rancher who welcomed us to the deep unknown.

MUD, MUD AND MORE MUD The rain was a mild annoyance, but the mud was intractable. It clung to everything with viscous tenacity, thoroughly gumming our wheels. Riding was impossible, so we literally dragged our mud-encrusted bikes over hill and dale, averaging about two hours per mile. After three days of this punishing ordeal we felt and looked like some of the early emigrants. When we finally reached a rain-drenched highway our mettle had been sorely tested. Our final push to Wells, Nevada took all we had left — and then some. The three battered horsemen found succor at a truck stop café. A long-haul trucker gave Graeme a 60-mile ride back to our starting point, where the car was parked. Our journey ended late that night in the cheap hotel room of a Wendover, Nevada casino where hot showers were a godsend. We dined on casino fare, pulled the slots, felt like aliens, and longed, just a bit, for the middle of nowhere. Paul Andersen is an Aspen Times columnist, contributing writer and book author.

OCTOPUS NETS TONS OF FANS IN OUR LANDLOCKED TOWN by AMANDA RAE

he lawn above the village in Snowmass was on fire during the Food & Wine Classic a few weeks ago. Dozens of charcoal-smudged chefs poked and prodded at blazing fires pits, over which whole animals — lambs, goats, rabbits, birds — roasted on spits as a searing June sun sank low in the sky. Hosted by the crew behind the feverishly popular Cochon555 US Tour, Heritage Fire was one of the coolest culinary spectacles of the weekend. I remember when it got weird. Standing amid plumes of black smoke that Friday afternoon, I spotted a freakish, bobbing figure across the field. I set down my rum punch and squinted. Could it be…an alien? Closer inspection revealed that the eerie creature dangling from a makeshift vertical rig was another kind of sentient being with a bulbous beak: A giant red octopus. The chef and puppeteer, Stephen Fried of New York-based Gullo Specialty Foods, had been tending his post nearly eight hours, regaling passersby with bits of marine trivia and posing for madcap photos while holding tentacles askew. In all, he roasted 11 octopus — 90 pounds total — which he sliced up and drizzled with anchovy-caper-parsley-lemon vinaigrette and chile-infused olive oil. The crowd went wild. Whole roasted pig heads? Whatever. “It was the first time I grilled octopus on beautiful local wood,” says Fried, known in

chef circles nationwide as “Octoman.” (Gullo Specialty Foods is the largest importer of Spanish octopus in America; Octoman, as his name suggests, is the main dealer to Denver distributor Seattle Fish Co., which supplies numerous local restaurants.) “Amazing.” I adore octopus — and I’ll order it whenever I find it on a menu, no doubt. So when Octoman tells me that the protein is swelling in popularity — “You see them on 70 to 80 percent of menus in cities across the country, and in bigger restaurants it’s our biggest seller,” he says — I decided to embark on a quest to find the best dishes in Aspen. I’ve already sampled what is widely considered the OG octo dish in town, at Ellina — mouth-meltingly tender, charred octopus tentacles atop a crispy risotto cake with lightly dressed arugula and sherry sauce. However, I ams happily surprised to find octopus dishes on more than a dozen restaurant menus and featured sporadically as specials at a few others. So what if our fair city is landlocked far from any seashore? After my Great Aspen Octo Crawl of 2015, I declare octopus Aspen’s summer spirit animal. For many reasons: It’s righteously healthy (high in protein, low in fat and cholesterol, iron-rich). It’s a quirkier choice than the usual seafood suspects, so chefs enjoy preparing it and adventurous diners are thrilled to try it. At the same time, it’s sincerely approachable, as octopus meat adapts to virtually any flavor. When cooked properly, the texture is divine. Move over, squid:

Octopus tastes of the faraway ocean and reeks of expensive taste. Calamari? So suburban stripmall circa-1996. “I moved here from California, so I really like using octopus,” says Matthew Padilla, chef de cuisine at The Little Nell. “It’s one of my favorite animals. I actually have it tattooed on myself—it goes around my shoulder.” For his dish, currently on the dinner menu at element 47, Padilla poaches Spanish octopus in olive oil, thyme, and bay leaf for up to six hours. “We found that the larger octopus are more tender than the smaller ones, which you’d think would be opposite,” he says. After a quick char, tentacles are sliced and plated alongside quenelles of warm German potato salad with pickled mustard seeds and local watercress. Though the chef cooked octopus frequently with Michael Mina at Quince in San Francisco, “this is the best way, personally.” After more than a year in the kitchen at Plato’s at the Aspen Meadows and with three seasonal menus under his apron, chef Aaron Schmude (above) unveiled his own cephalopod masterpiece earlier this summer. He tosses fresh squid-ink tagliatelle with guanciale (fatty Italian pork jowl), burst tomato, piquillo pepper, and micro-herb pesto, which nestles charred, marinated octopus in a brilliant flavor explosion. A beer-batter-fried squash blossom stuffed with risa, a Spanish sheep’s milk cheese, tops it off. (A glass of Campo Viejo

Tempranillo or sparkling Rioja is a must.) Schmude, at Plato’s by way of Las Vegas, uses what he calls the “triple-dip” method in a just simmering elixir of red wine, red wine vinegar, and Noble Tonic 03 XO sherry bourbon vinegar. “I dunk it three times from the head,” he says, having learned the technique long ago. “It shocks the muscles, to get them ready for cooking.” Most chefs agree: Octopus isn’t difficult to cook, per se, but it requires finesse. Some octo, including those hawked by Octoman, are pre-tenderized in a cold brine of sea salt and ice water in stainless-steel tumblers aboard the fishing boats, which may cut cooking to a third of the normal time. Superstitious cooks are known to throw a wine cork in the broth — an old fisherman’s tale believed to tenderize the tough muscle. (Alas, there is no scientific basis for why this might work.) The namesake chef and star of the documentary film “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” commands his apprentices to massage octopus with salt for no fewer than 50 minutes. Celebrity toque and Food & Wine Classic regular Scott Conant reportedly throws octopus and plain ol’ water in a washing machine. At the new Maru, chef de cuisine Trenton Brennan tenderizes octopus by hand via 1,000 karate chops before poaching it in fragrant Malaysian oil; executive chef Peter Coyne finishes the plate with seaweed salad, shiso chimichurri, pickled daikon, and house-made shichimi (Japanese 7-spice). If that doesn’t turn you on, we’re obviously not friends. “The main thing is to peel it, get rid of all that slimy, soft skin” on the underside, notes Zocalito chef-owner Mike Beary. His saucy shrimp and octopus seafood salad has been a menu staple for years. The dish is served warm, escabeche-style: sautéed onion, cactus, and jalapeño in Meyer lemon vinaigrette with red chicosle chile, avocado, and tomato with a sprinkling of cotija cheese and sorrel. Chefs Club by Food & Wine at the St. Regis serves a seasonal octopus a la plancha, another one of the most talked-about dishes around. Executive chef Todd Slossberg’s summer version sees a hefty charred tentacle surrounded by tomato-eggplant relish with currants, green olives, and paper-thin slices of crispy chorizo. (This winter, accouterments included almond Romesco, duck fat potato, chorizo, and arugula.)

“We will probably have it on the menu in some form, usually [with] Mediterranean flair,” Slossberg says. “It has become a signature dish for us. There is no secret about octopus, you just need to get a quality European octo and cook it carefully.” Though octopus are fished the world over, those from cold Mediterranean waters are most popular in the U.S. “They say the best octopus comes from Spain, maybe Japan,” Octoman says. Since the highly intelligent creatures grow fast and reproduce early — spawning up to 200,000 eggs at a time — trap-caught catch is classified yellow, or “good alternative,” on the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch List. There’s more: Matsuhisa prepares Peruvian octopus tiradito with rocoto chile paste, cilantro, and yuzu. Kenichi serves nigiri and sashimi tako, as well as torched sashimi with ponzu and spices. Grey Lady chef Kathleen Crook spices octopus and white bean tostadas with roasted jalapeño and tomatillo pipián salsa with lime juice and cashews. Casa Tua’s version of octopus salad incorporates haricots verts, potato, cherry tomato, olive, and pea tendril. Baby octopus is stir-fried in spicy garlic-black bean sauce at Asie Restaurant, too.

True-blue octopus fanatics will want to keep an eye out for fleeting specials conceived by local chefs. When I ask chef Nate King of Cache Cache if he’s playing with the protein this summer, I’m not surprised by his reply: “Funny, I was just thinking about that this morning,” he quips. Cache Cache’s current special: Spanish octopus cooked French-style in court bouillon, to preserve its flavor. “I don’t do corks or anything, just cook it 90 minutes and it comes out like butter,” King says. He serves it with sliced heirloom tomatoes from Rendezvous Farm in Crawford in a pool of sweet garlic purée and with warm, pickled-chanterelle mushroom vinaigrette over top. (A knockout pairing even oak-phobes will appreciate: Patz & Hall Dutton Ranch Chardonnay.) “Octopus really absorbs whatever flavor you put it with,” marvels Rustique chef Taylor Wolters, a Basalt native who recalls spearfishing for the creatures while attending culinary school in Maui. He’s already reprised his popular

octopus salad special at Rustique. It’s blanched and cooked sous-vide in red wine with mirepoix and bay leaf; chilled, sliced sashimi style, and marinated in grilled citrus-cumin vinaigrette; and served over frisée hearts with Marcona almonds and orange supremes. Catch it while you can. When Pinion’s showcased octopus and scallops with Palisade peach compote and jalapeño a few weeks ago, the dish sold out almost immediately. “It’s one of those ingredients that people are uneasy about, but when they get it, they like it,” concludes chef Schmude of Plato’s. “It’s simple, but different at the same time.” A summer classic, indeed.

OLD SONGS, NEW RECORDS A Q&A WITH IRON & WINE

IT’S BEEN A BUSY YEAR for Sam Beam, the singer-songwriter who performs as Iron & Wine. In February he released his “Archive Series Volume No. 1,” the first in what appears to be an ongoing set of recordings pulled off tapes that have been sitting in the proverbial drawer since before he broke out as Iron & Wine, he of the hushed lullaby voice and the ubiquitous cover of the Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights.” The 16 songs on the album date from the solo 4-track recording sessions that created his 2002 debut album, “The Creek Drank the Cradle.” Last month saw the release of “Sing Into My Mouth,” a freewheeling album of folky covers performed by Beam and Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses, including the Talking Heads’ “This Must Be the Place,” Bonnie Raitt’s “Any Day Woman” and songs from artists as diverse as Sade, Unicorn and Pete Seeger. After touring with Bridwell through July, Beam breaks off for a solo run that includes shows at Red Rocks Ampitheatre (Monday, Aug. 10) and Belly Up Aspen (Tuesday, Aug. 11). With just his guitar and his voice to use, Beam told me from a tour stop in Buffalo, he doesn’t change his approach much between a massive venue like Red Rocks and a more intimate one like Belly Up. “With a crowd that big I try to play stuff they might recognize more so than when it’s a small crowd and you can really have a conversation with almost everyone in the room and twist the set list around to accommodate them and yourself,” he says. Below is an edited transcript of the rest of our conversation. Read a longer version online at www.aspentimes.com.

those solos shows. It can be spontaneous. Obviously Ben won’t be there with me, but the fun thing about it is that I can pull from the whole catalog. I can do a lot of requests. And I do a lot of those songs. I might even just make up some songs. AT: That album’s a lot of fun. How did you hook up with Ben Bridwell and how did you pick the songs? SB: We grew up in the same town [in South Carolina] and I was really good friends with his older brother. So I knew Ben but we didn’t really become friends until the mid-90s.

“IT WAS FUNNY DISCOVERING MY MEMORY OF SOME SONGS WAS DIFFERENT FROM THE REALITY. THERE WERE SONGS THAT WERE SUCCESSFUL IN MY MIND AND THEY TURNED OUT TO NOT BE SO SUCCESSFUL. AND THEN OTHER SONGS THAT I DISMISSED AS AN EXERCISE WERE ACTUALLY REALLY TOUCHING AND INTERESTING. YOUR PERSPECTIVE CHANGES SO MUCH OVER TIME.”-SAM BEAM We shared a lot of the same tastes and would share music with one another. So we’ve been in each other’s musical lives for a long time. And he was the one to move to Seattle. He’s the one that got [the label Sup Pop] my music. So we had a lot to do with the beginnings of each other’s careers. As far as the songs, once we decided that’s what we wanted to do, we just started sending each other songs and saying “What about this one or this one?” There wasn’t any rhyme or reason to it. It was an intuitive process.

AT: What made the collaboration with Ben work musically? SB: I feel like I got lucky. Ben has this wildness to him and the music he makes, whether it’s the quality of his voice or the songs themselves. So it was fun to pair up with my — I don’t know how you describe it, but some people describe my voice as a warm blanket. [laughs] Like, you can put it on the craziest freak-out free jazz solo and it’ll tame it. So that was a fun pairing. We met each other in the middle. AT: The “Archives Series” is a strong record. So many of those songs would have held their own on

Andrew Travers: Are you going to leave the “Sing Into My Mouth” material behind for the solo gigs? Sam Beam: I’ll play some of it. That’s the fun thing about playing Iron & Wine will perform a solo show at Belly Up Aspen on Tuesday, Aug. 11. This year, the singer-songwriter has released a covers album with Ben Bridwell, of Band of Horses, and the 16-track “Archive Series Volume No. 1.”

your albums. Why did you wait so long to release them? SB: The first record [“The Creek Drank the Cradle”] wasn’t really written as a record. I had been recording and writing music as a hobby for years. So those were just picked out of a bunch of songs and made a record, but there was so much other material, and people have always been asking me about it. I really liked these songs, but by the time the first record came out I was already working on new songs. You know how artists are — we’re just into whatever we’re into at the time. So I released a few of them on the [2003 EP] “The Sea & The Rhythm” and then Calexico and I recorded some of them [on the 2005 EP “In the Reins”]. But it wasn’t like I was shying away from them, I was just always on to something else. There was so much material, and I can’t just put it all out at the same time. That’s just being a bad host. So it’s nice to have stuff to parcel out, and a vehicle to release live recordings — we have a lot of those from over the years with different bands, and a lot of cover songs from over the years. AT: So we can assume there will be a volume 2, 3, maybe more in the “Archives Series”? SB: Yeah, as long as people are interested. AT: Did any of the old songs surprise you? SB: It was funny discovering my memory of some songs was different from the reality. There were songs that were successful in my mind and they turned out to not be so successful. And then other songs that I dismissed as an exercise were actually really touching and interesting. Your perspective changes so much over time.

Iron & Wine will play Red Rocks Ampitheatre and Belly Up Aspen on the Colorado leg of his solo summer tour.

LEFT: In February Iron & Wine released the first volume of his “Archives Series,” including 16 previously unreleased songs from early in his career. BELOW: Iron & Wine and Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses collaborated on the covers album, “Sing Into My Mouth,” released in July.

AT: When you’re writing, does a song necessarily call for a full-band arrangement or a more stripped-down one? Or can you take it either way? SB: They can go any way, it’s just up to you and what you’re into at the time. It’s not math. There’s no right or wrong answer. People can act like there is, but there’s not. AT: Before Iron & Wine, you studied and taught film. Have seen any good movies this summer? SB: I haven’t had time to see movies lately, much to my displeasure. There’s a long list of things I want to see, but I guess I can’t do two things at once. atravers@aspentimes.com

BOOK REVIEW

NOTEWORTHY

‘SPARE PARTS’ IN 2004, four low-income MexicanAmerican high school students from Phoenix built an ingenious robot for a science competition that pitted them against teams from top colleges, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The story sounds almost too “Hollywood” to be true, and in fact, it has already inspired a documentary and a feature film. But seasoned journalist Joshua Davis sticks to the facts in his original book, “Spare Parts,” carefully reconstructing how these ESL students, “caught in the tractor-beam pull of poverty and low expectations,” became one of the top underwater robot teams in the country. Davis opens with officials from the NASA and Navy-sponsored Marine Advanced Technology Education Robotics Competition grilling the team members. “These kids had shown up with a garishly painted plastic robot that was partially assembled from scrap parts,” Davis writes. “They called their creation Stinky because it

smelled so bad when they glued it together.” And yet “Stinky” manages to outperform the sophisticated work of MIT’s best underwater robotics team. Davis then draws back to tell us about the robot’s creators, illustrating just how improbable it was that these teenagers ever managed to enter this competition. All four were brought to America from Mexico by their parents as children, and only one of them held a green card. Oscar Vasquez excelled in ROTC until he realized that his undocumented status would get in the way of a military career, while Cristian Arcega is a tinkerer with a sharp engineering mind. Lorenzo Santillian joins the robotics team as a way to escape a gang, and Luis Arranda is a taciturn hulk. They are fortunate in their teachers, Iranian immigrant Fredi Lajvardi and former Navy electronics technician Allan Cameron, who encourage their quest. Davis’ prose is straightforward, but he’s skillful at creating atmosphere and building suspense. You’ll find yourself whipping

through the pages to learn what happened — especially how the kids’ lives turned out after the contest. Davis describes how Lisa Spence, one of the contest judges, felt when she first met the four boys: “As a NASA employee, she had become accustomed to working with engineers who conformed to a sort of industry standard: white, well educated, conservative clothes. These four teenagers standing in front of her signaled that the future looked different.” One can only hope that this book leads people to question the wisdom of deporting American-raised children of immigrants — especially highachieving engineering whizzes like these.
