I spent a great deal of time breathing deeply. I live at practically sea level, and there I was, just a few miles from Mile High Stadium. I became worried a few times, when it seemed so hard to get enough air.

I've been to Denver twice. Our company's US headquarters are in Lakewood. I loved it! We went to the Buffalo Bill Museum, too. The first time I was there, Dys, Diane and Roger came up to meet us. We had a wonderful time.

My Swedish colleagues found the altitude a bit hard to get used to since they live at sea level.

Great pictures, Edgar! Thank you!

I lived very much at sea level before I moved to Abq, which is also a mile high. Didn't have any problem with breathing. Yet.

My one regret is, we did not get any deeper into the mountains. I have driven through Colorado, heading to California, after beginning at Providence, so, I have seen it before. But, my wife had never been that far north in her life. It is for her sake I wanted more.

I will keep posting pics as I find the time to scan them.

Next trip out there, try and plan at least a day driving up to Estes Park (about an hour and 1/2 up into the mountains), and visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park. Best time is in September-October. Absolutely beautiful.

It's all beautiful there, and if you happen to have Dys as a guide, it makes it awesome. I found it breathtaking, and so are you're pictures, ed!

Most definitely. It's wonderful. (My husband's family has a cabin in the Rockies -- nothing fancy, no running water or electricity, but gorgeous. I've been there about 4 times now I think, just love it.)

Vail is also about and hour and 1/2 from Denver, but it's straight out West on the Interstate. Great skiing!

Can't wait to see more.

Give me men to match my mountains,
Give me men to match my plains,
Men with freedom in their visions
And creation in their veins.

My daughter needed a break, and so pulled into this town in order to stretch her legs. We all got out on a parking lot, and stood in about a forty mile per hour wind a few minutes, then drove off. The whole town was casinos.
