My Trip to Red Rocks, Final Battle in The Akasha Series

Kaitlyn’s adventure has ended. But mine is just beginning! I would love to visit each of the places in The Akasha Series (see my post here to read more about them), and I am going to start at the end.  Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado is the location of the final battle in ‘Earth’. I was fortunate to go there this weekend with my sister.  Fair warning – this post contains crap loads of pictures; hope it loads okay for you!

View from the bottom. This is what Kaitlyn sees when she lands. Except for at night - and filled with scary, menacing members of One Less - not exercisers and tourists.

I left my bottle of water all the way down here, not realizing until I was huffing and puffing at the top. For the record, I did not go back for it.

 

One of each of the cliffs on the sides, Creation Rock and Ship Rock.

Me with a print copy of 'Earth'! I accidentally dropped it, so it is technically the only print version to have touched the Red Rocks themselves.  I gave it to my dad (sorry about the bent pages, dad).

Did I mention how many people were there exercising?  It made me feel...inadequate.  I solaced myself in the fact that I was about to attempt the BoulderBoulder 10k run (well...run/walk...okaymostly walk).

  1. Not too sure where you are located now Terra, but, yeah, isn’t Red Rocks Awsome!? don’t feel bad … jazillion of the inhabitants of the Boulder/Denver are excercise nuts! … some of us weren’t … thanks for sharing the pictures … nice to see Denver again … used to live there, now in NM in the 4 corners area, nice too

    • Thanks, Janie! I actually grew up in Colorado but had never been to Red Rocks until I came back for a visit. Exercise nuts is an understatement…geez. I did join most of them for the Bolder Boulder 10k run, and I did walk a lot of the way. 🙂 It was fun to see the frat houses along the way offering bacon, keg stands, slip ‘n slides, cotton candy, chips, free hugs. Not sure how people could partake in this stuff and run 6 miles! I did give a lot of high fives!

  2. Great set of photos you have here 🙂
