Colorado Pretty Pt. 1 – Clouds and Downtown

I went to lovely Denver to visit family in late May. They were having very unseasonable tornadoes the entire time.

They have a really nice baseball stadium right next to the historic downtown area.

It was a weekday, so not too full

They even have an outdoor scene with waterfall to reflect the culture here. It was sad to see so much water when we have so little here at home in California

Here was the big screen

Two rain/hail/tornado warning delays and they cancelled the game

These are scenes from ancient Colorado, hundreds of millions of years ago. It starts before plants had flowers

Then it was part of a vast, shallow sea

Land re-establishment
