Postcards From Denver: Day 2 Driving

Postcard From Denver: Walking Day 1

Our first trip of the day was to Golden, Colorado, for a tour of the world's largest brewery!  The drive was about 30 minutes, and it was a warm day.  We waited in line (in the shade!) for less than 20 minutes, and the tour was about 45 minutes.  Learn more here: Miller Coors. 🍻

Beer Vats
Feeling a bit peckish after sipping our samples of beer, we lunched at The Miners Saloon.  As we left the restaurant, a storm was barreling down upon us, and we hoofed it back to the car.  Just as the huge raindrops began to pelt down, we were strapped in, and ready for our next destination. ⛅

The wind whipped up, and the temps dropped!
While driving up into the mountains, the wind blew, the lightning flashed, and the rain turned into fat globs of white snow for a few minutes!  But, as we drove higher, the sun came back out, and the view became spectacular. 🌞

And where did we go, you ask?  Surprise!  We visiting Katie, Waffles, and Debbie from Glogirly!!!

Our socks were charmed off...I swear it!...by Debbie's hospitality and smiles, by the views from EVERY ROOM IN THE HOUSE, and Waffles...dear, sweet, ginger boy!  Katie remained demurely in her napping space; no overt showing off for her!  But "Show Off" is Waffles' middle name. 😺

After a delightful visit, and I refrained from hiding Waffles in my tote, we drove to Eldorado Canyon State Park.  This park is simply stunning; the raw beauty of the mountains takes one's breath away (and I'm not talking about the thinner air!) 😸

Breathtaking!

A pair of deer chose to entertain us for a few minutes
Driving back to Denver and our hotel, we were too tired to go anywhere for dinner, so we ordered in, climbed into comfy clothes, and whiled away our time watching DVDs until late at night.  We each flew out of Denver Airport, going in different directions, but the memories of our fabulous days in the Denver-area kept a smile on our faces!  I plan on returning to The Mile High City, and I recommend that everyone put it on their to-do list! 👍

Thanks again to Debbie, for your hospitality, and to Waffles and Katie for your adorableness! 💖

Waffles: "I will perform AFTER treats are given!"

Glogirly: "Here you go, Waffles."
Waffles: "Num num num..."

Waffles: "More!"

Glogirly: "Let's do your meerkat impression, Waffles!"
Waffles: "Anything for treats!"

Waffles: "So yummy!"
The rest of us: "You are too cute, Waffles!"
Waffles: *blink*
