It was pretty crazy hot downtown in the sun so we ate lunch and after a visit with Aunt Marge headed back to the house. After dinner and a walk it was time for me to be on my way. So I bid Sheila a goodbye. It was a great visit and one I wish I’d done much sooner.
On Saturday morning, I woke up and went to Cedric’s house in Centennial and off we went to
. Cedric came with proper footwear – I did not. This would be a theme throughout the day. Maxwell Falls
Our first rock was this wimpy little piece here. It may look impressive on the picture but the scale grew considerably as we went further up into the foothills.
Cedric climbed across a tree and channeled his inner Hulk Hogan (or something).
Cedric is either going Tron here or Lion King, not sure. But what’s clear is the DRAMA...
Most of the day we spent on one side or other of the creek. Here was the bridge where we crossed. We wouldn’t cross again as we got lost on the way back.
Cedric shows off his mad hops…but hey dude that’s only like a 3 foot gap…?
After lunch, Cedric decided to work on his try out for Herbal Essences. Word of advice – keep the day job, bro.
Where the trail was marked we had no trouble but more times than not we wound up in the middle of nowhere
At this point, we got completely and totally lost. We lost the trail and ended up relying on Cedric’s satellite GPS on his phone to find our way back to the parking lot. In the process we found this reservoir lake.
From this safe vantage point, I snapped a picture of Downtown Denver.
In Golden, we witnessed weed being sold out of an ice cream truck (weird to say the least) and then Cedric got high and thought this dragon was attacking him. LSD is a bad drug. Just saying.
When Cedric sobered up, we headed into downtown Golden which is very much into the whole “Being a cowboy” thing. Oh and they also have a thing for sculptures.
You made a time machine out of a Delorean?!! I can honestly say I’ve never seen one of these in the wild but Cedric didn’t miss it.
Oh hey, Golden is a mining town!
There’s a nice rushing stream passing right through downtown. The water level was exceptionally high when we were there and a lot of the pedestrian walkway was under water.
Did I mention that Golden likes sculptures? There was one of these things on just about every corner.
Finally, we settled down for some dinner and this really nice Bar and Grill –
So we end the picture tour with a nice fist bump between me and Cedric for a day well spent!
Oh last but not least, at the airport someone tried to get priority boarding on a Southwest flight because he was "feeling under the weather". For real?!?!
Gotta love America.
