Would have gone to the money
museum, except for the fact it wasn't open on Saturday, which
was when we were there.
Those painted bike wheels are a
piece of art. Lots of people would spin one or two. I saw one
little guy spin a whole bunch of them and then watch his
artwork fade away. Of course Virginia spun a blue one.
That bike trailer is the
smallest branch of the Denver Public Library. If you want the
service they can give you a library card in your choice of
nifty designs, or check out any of the books shown or books on
the other side. I think you can also return books, but didn't
see anybody do it.
That guy with the cardboard
boxes was feeding the hungry. He said it was his personal
community service project.
The Mint was closed when we got
there. It was about 4:20 anyway, so we just wrote off finding
out more about change. We found a place to sit in the shade
across the street and got legally high.
It was written in stone on the
side of a building, "Divine Nature made the country. Human art
built the cities." Likely it was an art museum.
Virginia offered this white guy
a sip of her coffee. Then we found the State Seal and took the
picture that proves it.
Downtown Denver has a real city
I don't know if the furry
creatures were traveling through or part of the scene. Either
way, it was an honor to cross paths with them.
We got vertigo from these
chairs. Got up feeling funny for sure. I'd call that
"Transdimensionalized!" Maybe it was the high altitude.
The red head is an awesome
singer. She was belting it out on the sidewalk for the fun of
it. Sounded good in a soul music way.
We crossed paths with this
buffalo heard. Such patient beasts!
Soon after this we were on the
free bus headed towards the hotel and our stuff.
The end of the line for the free
bus was Union Station. Our destination was a couple of miles
or so further down the road.
We saw a lot of those huge
construction cranes. I'd say they are swarming in Denver like
The cheapest gas I saw on the
whole trip was $1.999 at one place in Alabama. Didn't have
time to notice if the station was open.
We stopped to share a snack.
We'd been walking a long time. When we got up it was dark.
The only thing happening at the
bus station was the Denver game on TV.
There was much back and forth
action. The outcome was still in doubt with thirty seconds to
To make a long story short,
Denver won. Honored to catch a shot of the quarterbacks
shaking hands afterwards.
We mostly slept on the bus after
that. The long day of walking prepared me very well for
sleeping in a bus seat or two.
