Colorado/Wyoming 2004

Colorado/Wyoming 2004

In July of 2004 we exchanged homes with a family in Cheyenne, WY for about 10 days and visited some wonderful places in Colorado and Wyoming. We went to Denver and visited Red Rocks park, the zoo, and saw a Rockies game. We got to experience Frontier Days in Cheyene. We took in some amazing scenery in Rocky Mountain, Grand Teton, and Yellowstone National Parks. Here are some photos.
