My first snake encounter

Bucket list: to see the John Denver statue "Spirit".

We stopped at the Colorado Welcome Center and the gentleman gave us a bag of information and said that we would probably want to move here. It is pretty but not Virginia. We stopped in Colorado Springs and toured The Garden of the Gods and the Manitou Cliff Dwellings. Pretty interesting. We got to Denver and quickly sat up camp and ate something because I wanted to get to the Red Rocks Amplitheater. Tonight they were having an invitation only dinner to honor those that got the Colorado Music Hall of Fame and the John Denver Statue moved here. I did not get an invitation but that did not stop me from talking to people. When we got there, some people dressed very formal were taking pictures with the statue. I told them I was the number 1 fan of John Denver. They pointed out that three of their names were on the plaque responsible for moving the statue here so they got me beat. I am still the number 1 fan from Virginia!

A lot of famous performers have preformed at the Red Rock Ampitheater.
