Jared had a work trip this weekend to Denver. He had a little free time while he was there and took the opportunity to do some sight seeing.
This is by the GT office he was working at.
Red Rocks Amphitheater is the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheater in the world. The first concert to ever rock the rocks happened in 1906, former owner John Brisben Walker hosted Pietro Satriano and his 25-piece brass band to play the venue.- (https://www.westword.com/music/everything-you-need-to-know-about-red-rocks-5674948)
Arsenal Wildlife Refuge is located just northeast of Denver, the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge is a 15,000-acre expanse of prairie, wetland and woodland habitat. The land has a unique story – it has survived the test of time and transitioned from farmland, to war-time manufacturing site, to wildlife sanctuary. It may be one of the finest conservation success stories in history and a place where wildlife thrives. -(fws.gov/refuge/Rocky_Mountain_Arsenal/)
The Big Blue Bear down at the Convention Center is 40 feet tall!! It was installed in 2005 and has become a city icon.
I love that he’s peeking into the building.
Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. The cornerstone was laid in 1906. The twin 210 foot spires were capped in 1911.The total cost to build the Cathedral was approximately $500,000. There are 75 windows – more than any other church of any denomination in America. F.X. Zettler crafted the windows in Munich, Germany at the Royal Bavarian Art Institute (the firm and its secret for exquisite stained glass were destroyed during World War II). Mr. Zettler was a chemist known for his ability to craft beautiful colors and dyes. With monumental effect, Zettler oversaw 50 artisans who worked to craft our windows. In 1912 the total cost of the 75 windows were $34,000. Today, just one transept window would cost over $500,000. -(denvercathedral.org)
Denver State Capital.
It looks like he had a fun vacation…but don’t let these pictures fool you. He worked very hard too! Grateful for all Jared does for our family. I’m glad he was able to mix a little pleasure with business. <3 He deserves some fun!
