Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre

red rocks amphitheatreWhen we lived in Denver, one of our favorite places to visit was Red Rocks Park near Morrison. The amphitheatre is a famous venue for concerts during the summer. In the Visitor Center, you can see an exhibit about the people who have performed there.

We didn't attend any concerts at the amphitheatre, but we had fun driving through the park and walking the Trading Post Loop trail. The boys thought it was great when Amazing Race 9 started at Red Rocks. "Hey! We've been there!"
