Red Rocks and Dinosaur Ridge

On Wednesday we went to visit Red Rocks Amphitheater and Dinosaur Ridge. The amphitheater is gorgeous and has great natural acoustics—they have concerts there. We walked all the way down to the bottom to the stage and the view from there is pretty cool too. Of course, Drew had no trouble getting down to the bottom, but needed a little help on the way back up. We took lots of neat pictures—I’m still having fun with my camera.

After the amphitheater we headed over to Dinosaur Ridge to check out real fossils. It was pretty cool, although I couldn’t tell you exactly what we were looking at. Thank goodness for the signs with arrows pointing out all the important things!
