➜ Check out the top food and restaurant recommendations for Denver here:
1) Denver's free MallRide buses are on 16th street and will take all the way to the Capital Building. They are all 100% electric so they don't smell at all! It runs 7 days a week and stops on every block. They run approximately 3-15 minutes and every 1-2 minutes during peak times.
2) The Dikeou Collection can be hard to find, but it's well worth it! Bring headphones to take the free, extensive cell phone tour. It's entrance is right next to Jamba Juice and T-Mobile. The gallery is owned by Devon Dikeou and it is very interactive.
3) The Denver Blue Bear is called I See What You Mean and it's supposed to make you feel like a piece of iconic Colorado imagery is right outside of the Convention Center for all its visitors to see. Plus, the artist saw a cool picture of a bear peering into a window.
4) Take a tour at the United States Mint: the tour is free and is approximately 45 minutes. There are six tours: 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m., and 3:30 p.m.
5) The Colorado State Government Capital Building was born out of the Gold Rush in Denver, Colorado, so it's only fitting that the dome consists of gold leaf that is worth over $10 million dollars. There's also the entire world's supply of Colorado Rose Onyx marble inside of the building.
6) The only way to get to the 360 degree views on top of the Capital Building is to take a free tour!
7) Skyline Park is an urban three block park that allows you to do free seasonal events, such as ice skating! A pop up beer graden is also available.
8) The Great Divide Brewing Company is known for their various versions of Yeti Stout, so don't hesitate to try it!
9) Union Station is 136 years old, but it was completely remodeled in 2012 and opened up in 2014 as a large, mixed use complex.
10) My favorite bridge is the beautiful Denver Millennium Bridge, which is the world's first cable-stayed bridge. It's 200 feet high and it is located in LoDo.

Voice of the Colorado
The story of the Colorado begins high up on the Continental Divide where the Rocky Mountain sun turns snowpack into meltwater. These alpine bogs and streams are some of the most peaceful places on earth. You’ll find countless trout streams for fly fishing, hot springs for soaking, and whitewater rapids for paddling. As the river cuts across the Colorado Plateau it, continues to shape the landscape, nourishing croplands and vineyards so that every sip, every bite, brings us back to the river. Come see where the river takes you.

From Denver to Aspen, Rocky Mountains, U.S. Route 6, Colorado, United States, North America
The Rocky Mountains, commonly known as the Rockies, are a major mountain range in western North America. The Rocky Mountains stretch more than 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from the northernmost part of British Columbia, in western Canada, to New Mexico, in the southwestern United States. Within the North American Cordillera, the Rockies are somewhat distinct from the Pacific Coast Ranges and the Cascade Range and Sierra Nevada which all lie further to the west. The Rocky Mountains were initially formed from 80 million to 55 million years ago during the Laramide orogeny, in which a number of plates began to slide underneath the North American plate. The angle of subduction was shallow, resulting in a broad belt of mountains running down western North America. Since then, further tectonic activity and erosion by glaciers have sculpted the Rockies into dramatic peaks and valleys. At the end of the last ice age, humans started to inhabit the mountain range. After Europeans, such as Sir Alexander Mackenzie and Americans, such as the Lewis and Clark expedition, started to explore the range, minerals and furs drove the initial economic exploitation of the mountains, although the range itself never became densely populated. Currently, much of the mountain range is protected by public parks and forest lands, and is a popular tourist destination, especially for hiking, camping, mountaineering, fishing, hunting, mountain biking, skiing, and snowboarding. The eastern edge of the Rockies rises dramatically above the Interior Plains of central North America, including the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico, the Front Range of Colorado, the Wind River Range and Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming, the Absaroka-Beartooth ranges and Rocky Mountain Front of Montana and the Clark Range of Alberta. In Canada geographers define three main groups of ranges: the Continental Ranges, Hart Ranges and Muskwa Ranges (the latter two flank the Peace River, the only river to pierce the Rockies, and are collectively referred to as the Northern Rockies). The Muskwa and Hart Ranges together comprise what is known as the Northern Rockies (the Mackenzie Mountains north of the Liard River are sometimes referred to as being part of the Rocky Mountains but this is an unofficial designation). The rocks in the Rocky Mountains were formed before the mountains were raised by tectonic forces. The oldest rock is Precambrian metamorphic rock that forms the core of the North American continent. There is also Precambrian sedimentary argillite, dating back to 1.7 billion years ago. During the Paleozoic, western North America lay underneath a shallow sea, which deposited many kilometers of limestone and dolomite. In the southern Rocky Mountains, near present-day Colorado, these ancestral rocks were disturbed by mountain building approximately 300 Ma, during the Pennsylvanian. This mountain building produced the Ancestral Rocky Mountains. They consisted largely of Precambrian metamorphic rock forced upward through layers of the limestone laid down in the shallow sea. The mountains eroded throughout the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic, leaving extensive deposits of sedimentary rock. Terranes started to collide with the western edge of North America in the Mississippian (approximately 350 million years ago), causing the Antler orogeny. For 270 million years, the effects of plate collisions were focused very near the edge of the North American plate boundary, far to the west of the Rocky Mountain region. It was not until 80 Ma that these effects began to reach the Rockies. The current Rocky Mountains were raised in the Laramide orogeny from between 80 to 55 Ma. For the Canadian Rockies, the mountain building is analogous to a rug being pushed on a hardwood floor: the rug bunches up and forms wrinkles (mountains). In Canada, the terranes and subduction are the foot pushing the rug, the ancestral rocks are the rug, and the Canadian Shield in the middle of the continent is the hardwood floor. Further south, the growth of the Rocky Mountains in the United States was probably caused by an unusual subduction, where the Farallon plate dove at a shallow angle below the North American plate. This low angle moved the focus of melting and mountain building much farther inland than the normal 200 to 300 miles (300 to 500 km). It is postulated that the shallow angle of the subducting plate greatly increased the friction and other interactions with the thick continental mass above it. Tremendous thrusts piled sheets of crust on top of each other, building the extraordinarily broad, high Rocky Mountain range.

Cripple Creek Colorado, United States
Cripple Creek Colorado. United States 2005.
The City of Cripple Creek is the Statutory City that is the county seat of Teller County, Colorado, United States. The city population was 1189 at the 2010 United States Census. Cripple Creek is a former gold mining camp located 44 miles (71 km) southwest of Colorado Springs near the base of Pikes Peak. The Cripple Creek Historic District, which received National Historic Landmark status in 1961, includes part or all of city and includes surrounding area. The city is now a part of the Colorado Springs, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area. With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows.
Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs.
