Skull Tunnel on Lee Gulch Trail

Skull Tunnel

    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 Bridge Over Mary Carter Greenway Bike Path

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.

Mary Carter Greenway Bike Path Roundabout

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!
