I had a great time last week in Denver for the Romance Writers of America National Conference. I found Colorado, in general, to be quite lovely. Denver was just a functional city, and while fun, it was no Barcelona or NYC. All the same, I had a lot of fun.
My son tagged along to do a little adventuring while I was conferencing, but during my downtimes, I was able to get out in nature with him. We grabbed a Lyft to take us out to Morrison, so we could hike around Red Rocks Park. Another day we tried a new-to-us car sharing service, Car 2 Go, rather than our usual ZipCar when we drove up through Boulder and Estes Park to go to Rocky Mountain National Park. They’re all Mercedes, so we transported to and from hiking in style. By far, our favorite places in Colorado were away from cities. Here’s some memories from around Denver and Boulder.
