The B.O.B. Sign and Bell (Aspen Mountain)

The B.O.B. sign hangs on a dead tree on the Back of Bell (B.O.B.) on Ajax. The sign originally hung somewhere over near Vail, but somehow eventually found its way over to Aspen. Allegedly "The Bobs" ski group had something to do with this. Hanging nearby is a cowbell that can only be "rung" by an extended ski pole when there is a certain depth of snow that allows a person to reach that high.

Thanks to T.E. for the heads-up on this one.
