AOL Travel Editor’s Review

This pair of peaks poke up like Siamese-twin pyramids at the end of an open valley 11 miles southwest of Aspen. Because they are two of the most-photographed mountains in the country, even if you've never been here before, they'll feel like old friends the first time you sight the summits. Auto access is limited in summer, but RFTA buses from the Aspen Highlands parking lot access the area. Tickets run $6 for adults, $4 for children and seniors. After Labor Day weekend, buses run only Friday through Sunday. In winter, when the road lies buried by snow, Aspen's iconic peaks can still be best seen from the Loge Peak warming hut at Aspen Highlands.
