our first excursion to denver was great. we had our doubts after living near chicago, but we really fell in love in just a few hours. it was fun to shop at some of our favorite stores again in the cherry creek mall (where i picked up a lemon zester + mini colander!) and enjoy the sunny mild weather. we also stopped at an old train station-turned rei to get some items for future campouts. i can't wait to go back and explore more of denver!
