The Centennial State

Hubby Tony and I just got back from a whirlwind four days in Central Colorado.  While we were there we saw the sights in Denver:

State Capitol building

Capitol Building step--5280 feet

Big Blue Bear statue

Colorado Springs and nearby areas:

Air Force Academy chapel

Pike's Peak Cog Railway

And the Rocky Mountain National Park and surrounding territories:

Continental Divide-more than 2 miles above sea level

Five years ago today: Getting Nailed


  1. When you went up the cogwheel on Pike's Peak, did they mention that the red granite you were passing was found only in one other place in the world? At Graniteville, MO!

    I had just mentioned to Himself that the granite looked familiar when the guide said that! LOL

    1. When they mentioned the only other place was Elephant Rocks in Missouri Tony and I looked at each other in amazement. What are the chances?

      (I'd never heard of Graniteville before. I had to Google it to find out exactly where it was.)

  2. never been there save for a stopover at the airport enroute to Hawaii this year! Welcome home.

    1. I know Denver is a big airport hub. We've passed through there ourselves a couple of times. It was nice to finally see more of the city than the terminal.

  3. I went to Denver, CO several years ago. I'm sure you had a much better time though. My friend mostly just took me to different malls to shop. I would have liked to do the more touristy stuff, but since my friend was doing all the driving, we had to do the things she liked to do. Glad you got to get away for a few days and enjoy the sights!
