Denver -- some downtown & some Highlands

The shots are from Saturday, May 19, 2007. I started off on the north side of downtown, went through the Central Platte River Valley area and walked over the 16th Street Pedestrian Bridge into the Highlands Neighborhood and Highlands Square. Then walked back to Downtown along a different route and crossed over the 15th Street bridge.























































This is a pedestian/bicycle bridge that crosses from downtown to the Highlands neighborhood. There were some repairs being made that day.


































































































And a few more skyline shots from the last few months:

Wow! One of the best threads we've had in a long time! My roommate is from Denver, so we have this book on our coffeetable from like 15 years ago with pictures and stuff, and I was like, "yeah...seems OK." This thread totally made me realize that I'm missing out by never having visited!

Yeah, I don't think I did a very good job of capturing the activity of the city. It is quiet compared to major cities around the world like NYC, Chicago, London, Tokyo, HK, etc. but it is a little more active and vibrant than it appears in these pics.

Looks like a great DT area. Has the street scene always been so friendly or is that a recent thing because of/with the help of the light rail line?

Great pics! I thought I knew my US Geography pretty well, but I swear I didn't know the Platte river went all the back to Denver!

From those pictures, Denver looks a lot like a larger version of Winnipeg.
