Rocky Mountain High- March 15th 2010

Large roads laid out endlessly in front of me. This is Denver, Colorado. When I drove down Colfax, suddenly I saw the foothills of the Rockies up ahead. The awesome beauty of the sight sucked my breath right out of me. I thought I was seeing the Rockies (what do I know, right?)...I found out what I was looking at was just the foothills...just the foothills, what would I do if I saw the actual Rockies? How would my heart stand the beauty and majesty?


Wide open spaces seem to be the norm here in Colorado. I could hear John Denver in my head as I was driving around- his "Rocky Mountain High" and other tunes started forming in the recesses of my brain. 


I had never really cared for Denver- only been here 3 times now- one time I was being rushed off a plane and to an emergency room, but that is a story for another day. Today, I saw the beauty of Denver and Colorado. Although I would not want to live here, I can appreciate the splendour of this place. I guess I got a little 'high' on the Rocky Mountains today- or at least the foothills. :)

  1. I have been to Denver. It is beautiful but could be cold in winter. It is good for a visit for sure. I am sure people who live there love there.

    Typically I love the place where I live.

    Nice picture.

  5. A road that runs straight, and long, heading into the mountains is a great stretch. To drive straight, the mountains in viewup ahead all the time is unforgettable.

    Rocky Mountain High, hmmm.

  6. I hope you got to the new art museum, and to some of the lovely downtown area. Beautiful parks and other museums, too. Denver's definitely worth a look.

  9. Bob- you definitely should visit Colorado- I've heard other parts are much more beautiful than Denver. I do know when I visited Boulder, Colorado I enjoyed it tremendously.

    Anil P- I've been crazy busy lately- thus the lack of updates.

    Vera- I didn't have a chance to catch the museum on this visit- but I will be making more visits and hope to catch more things each time I go.

    Sneo- definitely Denver needs to be on your list- and of course Seattle, coz you will need to come and stay with me :)

  12. I've not yet been to Denver, but have seen the Rockies up close in Alberta and New Mexico and from a distance in Utah -- all very awe inspiring.

  16. Thanks for sharing the picture and your experience with us. It is a good luck for all of us who have never been to Denver. But I promise to be in Denver in a short period of time from now. I always loved traveling but the shortage of time drives me away from the lane. Thanks once again. Bye.
