I took these pictures last Friday, when we first arrived in Denver/Evergreen. I was just...in awe...of how gorgeous everything was and how COMPLETELY different this area is from Baltimore. Hell, I'm still in awe of it!
This is not the only sign like this I've seen in my travels. Also, the signs in Colorado are pretty funny. There are some coming down the mountains on I-70W I'll need to share with all of you.
You really need to click on these next photos and see the larger versions to get the total feelings of jealousy they're meant to invoke in you.
Abandoned mine. I'm not exaggerating when I say that these are EVERYWHERE in the countryside. Steve says I'm not allowed to explore in them. :(
Rolling hills leading up to the mountains on I-70W
In my new apartment, I'll only be a little over an hour away from the mountains. And no matter how much the drive up those steep inclines KILLS my hybrid battery, it'll always be completely worth it to get another view like this.
