Day 17: Westminster, Fort Collins, Green Montain State Park, Lakewood, Red Rock Ampitheatre & Arvada, CO.
30 September, 2009 § 1 Comment
Today was a crazy full day of multiple high school visits, spontaneous appointments with guidance counselors, long drives and a rather slow college fair – – but irregardless, it contained what has become my favorite part of this leg of the trip so far: a spontaneous trip to the Red Rock Ampitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. Located about 15 miles west of Denver, the gorgeous series of red rock formations is nestled into the foothills of the Rockies which means the view takes your breath away. Quite literally, actually, considering that the intrepid hiker is at an elevation of over 7,000 feet above sea-level. Let me tell you, this Pennsylvania girl’s lungs are still being toughened by Colorado atmospheric pressures! Or – – err – – something.
Anyways, the Internet connection at this hotel is being a little ferhoozed tonight so – – no more photos just now. Since I’m about to keel over from sleep-deprivation, though, it’s probably for the best in the long run. Let’s be honest: once I get sucked into the world of photo-editing, I will never want to stop working with the various shots. Hmm. Maybe Calvin was on to something, after all…
All talk of slow Internet connections and predestination and heavy eyelids aside, I’m out.
