Re: Denver

Donna, I'm just now getting a chance to put in my 2cents worth.  PLEASE, go
to Denver.  Our son lives there and we have visited CO since our oldest son
was 4, which probably explains why he lives in Anchorage and the youngest
lives in Larkspur, CO.  Anyway, we have taken the train from Denver to
Glenwood Springs.  It is awesome. We also visited the Royal Gorge and Pikes
Peak.  Were going to Mesa Verda, but the pass was closed by snow, so we went
to Santa Fe.  It is so beautiful out there.  Another time we took our
grandson who was three at the time on a ride.  Of course he fell asleep, but
as we entered The Garden of the Gods Park, he awoke and said, "Oh my God!".
Not really nice, but it did fit.  August should be the very best time to
visit Denver. BE SURE to take your AHS membership card and visit the
botanical garden in Denver.  It is free with your AHS card.  That is the
number one garden interest you MUST see.  If you have enough time, get off
the major highways and onto some back roads in the mountains.  Up around
Leadville, the wildflowers will blow you away.  My son and his then
girlfriend took me by 4 wheel drive through Mosquito Pass from Denver to
Leadville in July.  I will always treasure that memory.  I knew I would
ramble, but I can't encourage you enough.  What is your husband's interest
in trains?  My husband worked for the B&O as a Civil Engineer and is now a
Rail Track Expert, but he won't retire! Now, I'm so worked up I have to plan
a trip to visit the kids and we want to go on the Durango Silverton RR.
Have fun, Verona
