We have just returned from a road trip to the Denver area. It is very impressive to see the Rocky Mountains up close. We drove up to the Rocky Mountain National Park and would recommend the drive to anyone. I will add a photo or two here as soon as I get time.
Denver is a nice clean city, and there is a lot to do in the area. This was my first visit there and I will surely return again.
Here is a photo of me at about 12000 ft. in mid summer at the top of Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.-
