Denver, Colorado

After arriving safely in the Denver airport we took a shuttle to the hotel we took a quick nap before heading over to the 16th St. Pedestrian Mall to do a little shopping. Going to the Hard Rock Café for supper and seeing all the famous memorabilia on the walls there was a highlight of the trip!

On day 2 of the trip we went to the Denver Zoo where we saw tigers, sea lions, seals, elephants, rhinos, leopards, giraffes, huge gorillas, monkeys and much more! There was also a variety of bird exhibits that we were able to walk around and see all the different species that were there.

Day 3 was filled with beautiful sights and a minor detour that lead us up a road that curved up and around the mountains. We stopped to take pictures at the continental divide and then continued to drive to Breckenridge. When we were there we visited the Fun Park and rode the gondolas to the top of a mountain and played a round of mini golf and enjoyed a couple of roller coaster rides!

The last day of activities we went shopping, saw the movie Brave, ate lunch and went to the Banjo Billy Tour. The tour was lead by a funny guide who told us about the history of Denver. After the tour and supper, we enjoyed a horse drawn carriage ride around the area.

We all had a really great week but were ready to get back to Minnesota. The plane ride home was smooth and quick. On our way home stopped in Belle Plaine to eat. We all had a fantastic time and shared lots of memories together!
