DENVER, CO, usa
I went to Denver to celebrate the marriage of two beautiful people in a truly beautiful state! My partner, their family and I arrived at 3 AM, and let me tell you, I DO NOT RECOMMEND! My first memory of Colorado is passing out in my hotel room! LOL
We woke up the next day and made our way into downtown. We first saw the baseball stadium because my partner and their family loveeeeessss baseball, so it was a must see! After that we made our way to the Union Station to meet up with our tour guide, Steve.
We started our journey into Rocky National Park and hit trails on our drive up. The trails were stunning, and the mountain ranges are better than any picture captured. We saw small mountain towns that were built into the mountain side. You can see the history in these buildings from their weathered look. We continued up the mountains and made it to Echo Lake.
The air at Echo Lake was thin, every breath was labored, but the view was worth it. We walked around the lake taking in the natural quiet as we were miles away from the city. As we walked, we found a tree that was clawed out by a bear, and it was done very recently! It was really cool but really scary!
We closed out our small vacation with a concert at the Red Rocks Ampitheatre. It is an open-air amphitheatre built into a rock structure in the Rocky Mountain National Park. The music echoed through the carved rocks so well that it was like I was standing right next to the speakers, and I was at the very top!
This was a truly exciting trip, and I would love to go back and explore downtown and the national parks more!
