Visiting Colorado marked another state I've been to, and another step closer to visiting all 50 states. Here are some good pictures of the city:
The 16th St. pedestrian mall, planned by IM Pei.
The view from the dome atop the Capitol.
Cow statues. Mooooooo
The US Mint. No, I didn't go inside - security was worse than an airport. I'll watch the National Geographic channel :D
The flagship REI store
Rain outside REI
A big blue bear peeking into the Convention Center.
I wonder though, does it really count for visiting Colorado? I saw one city, I didn't go into the mountains, I didn't ski. By the same logic, have I really visited Minnesota? I went to the ballpark and the mall for an hour. Does spending 6 hours in a state mean I've seen it? There are other states I'm not sure I've visited. I think I drove through Arkansas en route to New Orleans, but I'm not sure, and if I got out of the car, it was only to get gas or buy snacks. I changed planes in Arizona, but I don't count that. I need to develop some criteria!
I have visited:
Wisconsin (drive through only)
