This post was made with a stash of photos from November of last year. On that beautiful Denver day I took my bicycle and my camera out on the Mary Carter Greenway Bike Path for some fun in the sun. I really noticed and appreciated the ways that bike paths have been accommodated in the Denver metro area. Anyway as I approached and rode through the tunnel you see above, it struck me that it looks like a skull. The electrical tubing seemed to add to that effect as well, as if it was an ornament or a scar.
Bikers On A Bridge
This bike path crosses the South Platte River many times and there is a sturdy bridge at each of the crossings. All the little things that made Denver great when I left 8 years ago have turned into big things that now make the mile high city absolutely awesome; I am so glad to be back.
Mineral Ave. Bridge
The way Denver has made it possible to travel all over the metro area in a train, on a bicycle, on foot and by bus is very intelligent and since it is still growing will certainly be a model for other cities around the world. Above is the bridge on Mineral Ave. near Santa Fe Blvd.
Roundabout On Mary Carter Greenway
This is the trail I rode on a separate occasion when I posted some photos from Confluence Park a couple months ago. The roundabout pictured above is in Littleton, facing north. Anyway it’s been so cold recently that I went digging through the stash looking for some photos to remind me that soon I’ll be able to ride my back whenever I want. I am very excited to experience my first Denver spring and summer since 2005. Cheers!
