Denver – May 2010 – Touring the Area

Our Colorado trip continued with most of the day spent in and around Denver. First stop – Lookout Mountain above Golden, Colorado.

Back in town we stopped at Union Station, just before it closed for extensive renovations.

Tourists thinking they are on the mile high step at the Colorado State Capital, but with more modern measuring techniques it is actually three steps behind them (marked with the small round gold plate)

After that, we headed to the airport to pick up a nephew. The distinctive roofline of the airport is supposedly a tribute to the mountains.
