Wow, Look at That!

Do you remember the Beverly Hillbillies comedy show on television?

It ran for nine seasons, from 1962 to 1971, and was about a poor backwoods family.

The father was Jed Clampett.  He struck oil on his land and became a millionaire overnight.

The family packed up a truck and moved to Beverly Hills where everything was shockingly new to them.

Last November, while vacationing in Denver, Colorado, I felt a little bit like one of the Beverly Hillbillies while walking in this unique and exciting city's downtown.

Some of the buildings are so tall, I found myself stretching my neck to look all the way up to the top! Yee haw! 

The huge bear shown in the photo at the top of this post is 40 feet high and stands looking into the window of the Denver Convention Center.

He was designed by a local artist and gives a sense of fun to a visit at that destination.  He sure attracts a lot of attention, too.

If you ever have a chance to travel to Denver, take it. It's a great place to visit.

Anyway, thought you might like to see some of the buildings in downtown Denver on this brisk winter day.

I went to the top of the Empire State building once. That's the tallest I've been to. I feel like you did in Denver when I go to NYC....have a great day!

Hi... my first time visit I do believe.

Enjoyed my time here. I notice we share similar interests and loves.

Enjoyed all the pretty graphics in your sidebar from Rose Petals.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Wow is right! That bear is amazing. We've seen the Burj Khalifa in Dubai -- you actually have to pay to go inside and look around so we said to heck with that and stayed outside looking on. I didn't realize downtown Denver had such tall buildings. Hope you are having a great day. Tammy

It's always fun to see and hear reactions of visitors to our wonderfully beautiful Mile High City! I am so happy you enjoyed your visit. I will be seeing the big blue bear twice in the next few weeks working at a couple of trade shows at the convention center.
Also, thank you for stopping by to visit my blog! I hope you return to visit me and Denver :)
