I need some inspiration this weekend! It is also First Saturdays in Denver!
That means I can get into both the Denver Art Museum (DAM) and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) together for just a penny! It is about a mile and a half walk between the two museums and if I get lazy (or short on time) I can always take the Free Bus Shuttle on the 16th Street Mall to cover about 15 blocks between the two locations. When I go for a hike, I usually hike at altitude for 6+ miles. This seems like a good time to try out my flaneuring skills and see a new side of Denver! Hopefully I can make a few new sketches, write some poetry, take some pics, and take in some (not so fresh) air in the Mile High City!
