Presenting my iPhone photos to belatedly wrap up my fun Denver adventure from last month (and oh, a bit on my iPhone pic approach).

I know it’s been a bit slow here – no excuses, just life – another trip, some ups, some downs, and hopefully some major shifts in the works. I can’t talk about most of that now, but part of that should result in some changes and updates to this site. Stay tuned and wish me luck!

Weekend Wanderings :: Denver (& Surrounds)

30 Apr

Washington Park, Denver

In early April, a couple of us ventured to Denver to visit another friend who had just relocated. We’d all had rather hectic days leading up to the weekend, so there wasn’t a lot of planning or expectation, just a common goal to catch up, check out the area and enjoy ourselves. As it turned out we didn’t spend a whole lot of time in Denver proper, but explored the surrounding areas. Saturday started with a walk around Washington park (above) followed by piling in the car with a vague idea of heading toward Breckenridge. Along the way we impulsively stopped to check out Buffalo Bill’s grave and its corresponding kitschy gift store (recommended).

A little further up the freeway, we noticed a frozen waterfall and once again spontaneously veered into the quaint little town of Idaho Springs for some photo snapping and some brew pub lunching.

Once in Breckenridge the spur-of-the-moment spirit continued with a gondola sighting and an emphatic, “I want to go on that!” which led to happening upon a ski slope concert that included a Mighty Mighty Bosstones performance. Further investigation into town and a recommendation from the locals led us to a tasting at the Breckenridge Distillery (which I now also endorse as a destination).

On Sunday, we spent some time strolling through Boulder, trying out the fairly new West Flanders Brewing Co. (my favorite of the breweries we visited), and stopping at Left Hand Brewing in Longmont.
