It's the Rockies, And a Lot More

We just got back from a great trip to Denver. This wasn't a camping trip. It was a business trip for Sherry and I, but we brought Andy along and made it a family weekend too. The Denver Museum of Nature and Science has some of the best dioramas and exhibits we've seen, but our family favorite was this Ninja Squirrel!

In looking through our albums, it seems obvious we are attracted to statues of bears. This one of a sleeping bear was terrific. It captured our feelings after touring Golden, Colorado and sampling the free beer at the Coors Factory tour.

Colorado is a beautiful place. This final photo was taken from Buffalo Bill's grave site on top of Lookout mountain (Click for a larger view). It really shows the character of the place. The city in the foreground is Golden; the big factory is the Coors Brewery; and Denver is on the horizon.

I take exception to calling Coors - Beer. Shame Shame. But then, if the Bud folks sell out for $46 billion, there may not be any real American beer left except for Miller/Coors. I guess the high cost of gas is getting to everyone.

BTW - glad you had a safe and good trip.
