Paul McCartney and Jane Asher holiday in Denver

The day after her 21st birthday, Paul McCartney and Jane Asher spent the day exploring the Rocky Mountains in Denver, Colorado.

The Beatles’ assistant Mal Evans hired a Hertz rental car and drove them into the mountains. They parked away from the road among some trees where they walked down a rocky gorge to a river, where they paddled in the cold water. Afterwards they walked barefoot in snowdrifts.

In the evening McCartney and Asher ate a large meal at the house they borrowed from Bert Rosenthal, and afterwards fell asleep in front of his colour television.
