I had to duck out of work about an hour early on Friday to make it to the airport on time, but lucked out with a meeting right beforehand-it got out early and was very close to the Silver Line (which I take advantage of whenever I can), so I actually beat Dad to the airport by quite a lot. He was maybe a liiiiittle stressed by this-I definitely got my need to be 2+ hours early from him. Because of all his travel on Delta, he pretty much always gets an upgrade to Comfort+, which I never do-so I definitely enjoyed it! The connecting flight out of Detroit was even better because of a surprise upgrade to first-thanks to Dad and Delta for allowing me to take advantage of it! Getting to order prosecco before they had even finished boarding made me feel pretty special :)
As always, I'll detail the food in another post-we ate way too much to lump it in with anything else! Dad, Lucas, and I enjoyed lots of food and drink so stay tuned for that.
Flatirons. The views were gorgeous and while I think I could've handled slightly more challenge, I could definitely feel the increased elevation. We ran into just one person on horseback, but apparently that is something you can do-when I go back for a long weekend, I definitely want to find a way to do so!
Goldmine Vintage and got a very sweet dress from the '60s-I can't wait to wear it!
Mutiny Information Cafe, was fascinating-coffee, books, comics, and...pinball machines? There were several other bookstores along the same street, which was so cool to see. I wish we'd had more time to visit them all!
love this city" murals. Thanks for playing photographer, Dad! :) Next time I can hopefully see the other two-I love the variety of street art you can see in Denver.
We had a redeye flight back (which I would definitely not recommend if you have to work the next day, as it comes out to only about 3 hours of sleep), but it was 100% worth it. I just want to go back for a longer weekend soon!
