I reached out to bring in some fresh voices while I’m out of town this week and give you recommendations on what they think you should see if you visit the Denver area.

Red Rocks near Denver, Colorado

From Greg of MarketingPress:

Denver is one of our favorite cities to visit any time of year. As a music fan, Red Rocks (in Morrison 15 minutes out of the city limits) has to be a must on everyone’s list.

If God were to build an ampitheater, he would would model it after Red Rocks.

Jingjing, who we introduced to camping, recommends you make a friend on your trip:

If you plan to go to Denver, don’t forget to say “hi” to the big blue bear who is standing in front of the Colorado Convention Center and trying to peep at what’s happening inside. I want to let you know that the blue bear is 10,000 pounds and 40 feet high! So, go and catch him!

Lori of Lavender Luz is a Denver-area local, who wanted to share this perfect moment from a visit to the Mother Cabrini Shrine:

I enjoy coming up here for clarity. I came once years ago with a group of spiritually seeking women on gloriously perfect late-summer Sunday and I reflected on myself as a once barren place, then flowing with new motherhood. The sky was so blue that day, the clearest blue imaginable. I could look out over my beautiful city in one direction, and into higher mountains in the other. Crisp colors of a perfect world.I had a moment of being anchored in something firm and everlasting.
