We landed in Denver, Colorado and weren’t ready to go to our rental, so we hit Red Rocks, where we did a portion of the trail and saw the amphitheater.
The first thing Gen and I noticed was that the entire area was lush and green, except Red Rocks. It was like a bright red desert in the middle of a mountain forest.
