An autumn bike ride around beautiful Lake Dillon, a reservoir serving the city of Denver. Frisco and Silverthorne lie on the lake as well. The aspens were turning glowing gold and the sunny weather yielded me fantastic mountain landscapes!
A road trip through Loveland Pass in the Rockies on Colorado Highway 6. The highest pass road that stays open during the winter in Colorado, you cruise above the treeline for sweeping views. So, loop off Interstate 70 and enjoy the scenic route 800 feet above the tunnels.
A late-summer bike ride around Lake McIntosh near Longmont, Colorado, in Boulder County. Stunning landscape photos and an easy ride around the 3.5-mile path revealed ranch land and prairie dogs and fantastic, glassy water.
The Old Prospector sculpture in Denver, Colorado, has quite a back story. Not only was it modeled after John Straughn, a larger-than-life character, it was sculpted by a German metalworker. It used to stand atop the now-gone Colorado Gold Mining Exchange building - itself a historical treasure.
Public audio art by Jim Green is installed in Curtis Street's sidewalk in downtown Denver, Colorado. Sounds that seem out of place in the city setting emanate from sidewalk grates in the midst of the usual traffic noise. It will catch your attention and actually make you feel good!
Visit Denver's Cheeman Park for an impressive Greek-style pavilion suitable for weddings and formal pictures. In addition, its 81-acre expanse is a great place for picnics and frisbee games. Bring your dog!
