Glatt, thanks for posting the pics and the recount of the trip. Your post brings back memories of hunting trips as a kid w/Popdigr 'out west'.

Hunting/hiking, bow in hand, hotel on yer back, nothing but a paper map to tell where you are, no where to be for weeks. Get tired, you're in luck, you stopped right in the middle of a great camping spot, right where your feet are.

Looking down onto mountaintops.

New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho...Man those are some great memories. I haven't thought about some of that stuff in years.

Thanks again.

Those are some awesome memories! The West is pretty cool. I wouldn't want to live there with everything so far apart, but it's perfect for getting away.

Breathtaking out there. My daughter has showed me some of Colorado. Thanks for the fantastic pics and narrative, glatt.

You'll adapt.

Come on out, you'll never go back.

I bicycled past the Coors complex, toured the Denver Mint.

Thanks for posting your pics, glatt. They brought back happy memories of my trips to the US.
Mine didn't require the same exertion as yours, though!

I always started from Denver and stayed in Cheyenne on several occasions.
As with your trip, Crazy Horse and Devil's Tower were on the itinerary along with the Black Hills.
Happy days.

Done that. But, instead of bicycling, I backseated a Ford Fiesta past Coors. Before touring the mint. I think I still might have the proofs I got there.

We considered the mint, but we were not going to arrive until noon, and they start giving the day's tickets away in person at 6am that morning. We figured there would be a snowball's chance in hell of getting a ticket.

The tea factory was neat. They had the shredding machines behind glass, and the teabag packing machines too. But all the boxing and crating machines were right there where we could see them, and we saw the huge sacks of raw ingredients they source from all aver the world. You could sniff them as you walked by. Actually pretty cool.

Filling the tea bags would be interesting.

It would be interesting to find out. The Denver mint didn't make proof sets, only uncirculated sets; but, it did sell proof sets made by the other mints in its souvenir shop since it carried the whole line of US Mint products.
