Dinner with friends

Pedro, his friend and I had an incredible vegan dinner on our last night in Denver.

This was at an outdoor mall at 16th street, Denver, CO.

Driving to Mount Evans' summit

Yesterday Pedro and I drove up to the top of Mount Evans, the highest paved road in United States. From there, there was a short climb to the summit. Beautiful place! We lucked out and saw some really rare animals close by, too!

Hemp store

Hemp /marijuana is legal in Colorado, so you can find people smoking weed on the streets as well as stores selling it openly. This one was in Manitou Springs.

Manitou Springs

This cool little town was nearby the mountain we climbed. We walked around and saw many stores and then decided to stop by and have dinner on a Mediterranean place.

Bear activity

Cool sign warning about bear activity on the Manitou Incline.

These are a few pictures of the summit and then the descent.

Climbing the Manitou Incline - Part 1

This is a straight straight up to the mountain where we gain the over 2200 feet in elevation in less than one mile. I was quite out of shape so it took me a while to get there. Pedro was doing better all way long. The views are incredible and we had a blast. Definitely enjoyed the day!

Garden of Gods - more pictures

Even though I already posted some pictures of us at the Garden of Gods on Tuesday, here are some more. These are excellent, taken with Pedro's camera instead of my phone.
