Red Rocks 🎸 Buffalo Bill 🦬 Golden ⛏️Boulder

Our daytrip started at the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater. There‘s really no better place to see the stars. The Visitor Center houses exhibits related to the park and amphitheatre, special event spaces including the Southwest Heart of the Rock Theatre and the Red Rocks Hall of Fame. And Red Rock is also a park. All around you are 738 total acres of deer, dinosaurs, pines and prairie, geological wonders and spectacular vistas. 

Next stop is the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave. After the civil war, William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody scouted for the Army and gained the nickname “Buffalo Bill” as a hunter providing meat for the railroad workers. Buffalo Bill’s show business career began on December 17, 1872, in Chicago. In 1917 Buffalo Bill died while visiting his sister’s home in Denver. According to his wife Louisa, it was his choice that he be buried on Lookout Mountain overlooking Denver and the plains. 

Afterwards we‘ve been to Golden. Golden, Colorado is rich with culture, outdoor activities, scenic beauty, thriving businesses, and friendly people, but the City’s origins are largely thanks to another valuable resource – gold. So, we visited the Golden Mining Museum. 

The daytrip ended in Boulder or rather at the Pearl Street with great shops and restaurants!
