Beloved says my face isn't on straight, and he's got HAIR for the first time in decades. The museum emailed our pictures to us.
Further ventures into more rooms of this museum took us to a scale model of the cliff dwellings located in the Four Corners part of Colorado.
On the heels of the Dust Bowl days was World War II. There was a striking walk-through display of a room in the Amache camp in southern Colorado, where innocent Japanese Americans were imprisoned.
In a room dedicated to history specific to Denver, Beloved tried to put on a barrel for his picture with our well-known Bronco "Barrel Man" but with his coat on, the barrel was too snug to drop down over his shoulders. (we later realized he was using the child's size)
We learned that when a policeman puts a "boot" on a tire for a parking violation, that boot was invented here in Denver!
Eventually our feet got tired and we realized we had missed lunchtime. We found the cafe on the main floor of the where Beloved ordered this delicious bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich.
I ordered the wonderful spinach salad with fresh strawberries, red onion, glazed walnuts, soft goat cheese and a vinaigrette dressing.
