In the park by our house is the trail head for a very steep, 1 mile hike that brings you up to the "Royal Arch," a very famous rock formation in Boulder.

We took this from the top of the Royal arch trail, and if you look closely you can just make out the outline of the Denver skyline.

We took a trip into Denver to show Peter the "big city" and to go to a Rockies baseball game. The game was a battle for last place between the two lowest ranked teams in the league, but it was still a lot of fun. This is the sunset over the the Rockies.

It was strange to be able to buy tickets just before the game for only 9 dollars each. A big difference from Redsox games, where the whole season sells out in less than 20 minutes.
