For the second time in less than a year, Carbondale – located about 25 mile down valley from Aspen, CO –  has made it onto the cover of a national magazine touting the wonderful aspects of the place.The June-July edition of Outdoor Life magazine, which caters to hunters, anglers and other sporting types, gave Carbondale an “A” across the board in its report card gauging such things as “fishable species,” “huntable species,” “public land access,” “trophy potential” and “gun laws.”The town also was highlighted on the cover, and in an inside story, in Adventure magazine’s August 2008 issue, in an article titled “Where to Live & Play Now: The 50 Next Great Towns.”
