This was really two trips in one: First to visit our daughter, who had moved to Denver, and see the Rockies and some sites in the area. Second to take a six day trip, with her, to see Wyoming and visit three places I always wanted to see: Jackson Hole, Yellowstone and Cheyenne. Since we wanted to visit our daughter, it gave us the perfect excuse to do both in one trip to two places we had never been.
So we flew to Denver and met our daughter at the airport. We were amazed that when we landed there was no sight of Denver anywhere to be found. We knew the airport was not near the city, but this was ridiculous! She took us to the rental car facility near the airport and then we followed her to our hotel and checked in. Then she showed us around the area, where she lived and worked, and then we went to Lookout Mountain and saw the Coors Brewery off in the distance in Golden--just like you hear in those beer commercials.
