Thanks for sharing! Always loved John and his music.

I made it to the gatehouse of Starwood many years ago. What a gorgeous location!

I used to go up into Starwood occasionally for work and what is nice up there is many of the houses are not the cookie cutter McMegaMansion type mountain homes. One hollywood stars house I have been to has similar architecture to an italian winery. I used to like to go up there in summer when it was green.

I might have even been to John Denver's old house, but I didn't know it was his. Nice to read the story of it. Too bad the kids had to sell the house thanks to the federal government.

Starwood you can't get into unless you are on a guest list and expected. It's all private property.

I think the crazy old Claudine Longet still lives up there.

You know i am always touched that after all this time, people still have interested in the family of john denver. Well his mother died in 2010 i believe, and as for the cassandra woman, well i do not know or care, she made a fool of him all over colorado as the words were written,

the beauty and the wonder of it all is john denver lives on in his music, his words, his hopes and in his love for all of us and in our world.

Windstar has gone, but john denver in spirit is with us, you can hear him in the breaking of the dawn, and on a starlight night, you can feel him when you make a stand for the the saving of a species, the conservation of the environment, and for the retention of the wilderness. Above all you know he is no longer a wandering soul he is home.

John denver was a dreamer and in a very special way, he made you believe that miracles can happen, and he was correct.

It is our mission to carry on where john left of and the biggest challenge we have is to help our young people world over to believe they truly are special and of greatest worth.they will save creation and the earth. They need that dream, we need to help them.

In a van. He was a struggling musician for a lot of years in the late 60s-early 70s. His father was in the military, so he moved around a lot prior to steeping out on his own.

His first wife was from Minnsota, and I believe that they lived there from the time they were married until they moved to Aspen. But, yeah, between being an "Air Force Brat" as a youth and trying to get a career as a singer-songwriter off the ground as a young adult, he lived a pretty transient life up until that point.
