A day in Denver

We had the opportunity to do some exploring in Denver today. We started with the city's free walking tour, which was very interesting and informative. Plus, we got in some exercise and Vitamin D.

The walking tour started just across from the capitol

The city is doing an environmental awareness project,
and they have painted many of the tree trunks throughout the city blue. I will say, it certainly does cause you to be aware of the trees.

The tour ended at Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies

After the tour, we stopped for lunch at Wynkoop Brewing Company, Denver's oldest Craft brewery. The building is beautiful. The food is delicious. And, the games are abundant.

Later, we headed over to The Denver Museum of Nature and Science. We are suckers for science museum, and this one was wonderful.

When the museum closed, we took an Uber back to our RV park, gathered up all the laundry, and ate pizza and calzones at Mannie and Bo's while we waited on the washing and drying to finish at the laundromat. Denver is a fun city, and we had fun seeing some of the highlights today.
