It’s a valid question to ask someone who’s not a sports buff, a pothead, or just flying in for the easy access to hiking in the mountains. To be honest, I had no real reason to visit besides my boyfriend’s promise that it’s a super fun city. I didn’t even root for the Broncos during the Superbowl – I picked North Carolina to win because I like their uniform colors better. Yet, my boyfriend came through on his promise – Denver is actually a pretty great city!
The Botanical Gardens were particularly nice. This futuristic pyramid is the science pavilion where they had exhibits about various Colorado environments and plants.
There was a Japanese garden as well. It wasn’t as extensive as the Japanese gardens in Portland but there was a gallery of bonsai trees and a Zen garden and this cool little gateway. I miss Tokyo!
^^ I have provided some blurry bees for your enjoyment. There were many bees but it is difficult to get them in focus with an iphone. One day I will master this skill.
Stay tuned for more pics from Denver once I find them!
