We had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants - The Fort, which is in Morrison, Colorado, in the foothills above Denver. It was built to resemble Bent's Fort which was built in 1840 near La Junta, Colorado and was a fur trading post where trappers and Indians could meet to trade. So it specializes in game and cuisine of the old west. There used to be a live bear in the courtyard, but it's been replaced with a bear statue. We had quail, elk, buffalo and trout - yummy, while watching the lights of Denver.
An unexpected treat was a trip to the Denver Art Museum where we toured the King Tut Exhibit. The Art Museum has doubled in size since I lived in Denver - it's quite impressive. Downtown Denver has certainly changed since I worked down there in 1966!
The capitol building has a real gold dome!
And of course, the main reason for a trip to Denver was to get to visit with my daughter, Kristen!
Next - south to New Mexico!
