Denver History Museumthe Colorado History Museum.  It was an excellent museum. We learned about the Japanese internment camps in Colorado during World War II.  We saw a small Colorado town the way it would have looked at the turn of the century. We saw a photo exhibit called The American Soldier. biking in denver

We went to the Wynkoop for lunch. The Wynkoop was founded by Colorado’s governor John Hickenlooper and is said to be the business which initiated the renewal of Denver’s downtown area. Jack a former ICS  teacher from Chicago and his two daughters joined us for lunch. marylou and the two emily's Here I am with the two Emilys.
