2016 Denver and Surrounding Areas

Saturday, October 1, 2016

We arrived in Denver yesterday, rented a car, went to visit my nephew and his girl friend who just had their baby, and went to dinner with them. The baby is beautiful, well behaved, and we all had a great time. 

Today we're meeting a friend who lives in Denver, then going to and spending a day in Vail, 90 minutes west of Denver.

We are going home today but before we head to the airport, we visit a couple of 'must-see' places in Denver.
