Denver, Colorado: You are quite lovely.

Beautiful

Denver 37 stories up – what a view of the Rocky Mountains. The air is clean, leaving you gasping for oxygen though due to the elevation.

I See What You Mean

Big Blue Bear in Denver, CO - Denver Convention Center

Who knew Denver was so artsy fartsy? Not me. I LOVE this place.  Thursday, me – myself and I went on a short walk around the Denver Convention Center.  When riding from the airport, the taxi drove right past this – and I KNEW I had to see this thing up close and personal.

At the Denver Convention Center there is a 40 foot blue fiberglass bear that peeks into the windows.  This art piece is called “I See What You Mean” by artist Lawrence Argent.

Green

bike rentals in downtown Denver, CO

Denver is very green. There are recycle bins prominently placed in buildings, and even in my hotel room.  There are bike rental stations conviently placed in various areas of downtown. The outdoor 16th street mall offers a free bus, ran on alternative fuel.

Next Time

Your 50 degree September mornings, nice crisp breezes and gorgeous surroundings make me happy. Next time I’ll bring my family and spend more time exploring the arts and experiencing your natural beauty.

My only complaint is the $54 cab fare each way from the airport. Other than that – I think I like you.

    My brother lives in Fort Collins, about an hour north of Denver. That place is incredible. But we stayed in Denver, too, and really loved it. Glad you saw the bear!
