The Flatirons, from our room,
and the Flatirons under construction
(tee hee hee)
For the city portion of our trip, we strolled Pearl Street Mall, famous for its street performers. There were two bands with washboards, and while the Hokum High Rollers may have had the better sound,
who could resist a boy band featuring a guitar playing, harmonica blowing, foot-tambourine playing singer, as well as a washboard playing, garbage pail drummer? I'm giving the nod to the Tumbleweed Wanderers!
But wait, there's more! Contortionists! Jugglers!
This is about all I could watch of these guy,
and they were just warming up.
No city trip would be complete without some fine dining.
The city was fun, but we were ready for some country.
We spent some time exploring the mountains, and we did a little light hiking in Chautauqua Park (click it to learn more). We both love Chautauqua. Back when David was getting his doctorate at the University of Colorado, he was a runner. One of his favorite routes was from campus to the trails in this beautiful park.
It was a wonderful trip.
