Colorado (week of September 7, 2008)

Laura and I spent a terrific 5 days and 5 nights in Denver, Colorado with our dear friend Amy. A good part of our stay was dedicated to hiking the beautiful mountains in and around Denver (alas, we didn't get to the Rocky Mountain National Park, which we will do next time). Hence, many of the photos from this trip can be found in the various hike collections: Roxborough (September 10), Garden of the Gods (September 10), Rattlesnake Gulch (September 11), and Eldorado Canyon (September 11).

However, much of the time was spent visiting sites in Denver, Colorado Springs (to the south) and Boulder (to the north). These photos are in this album.
