G is for Golden

The city of Golden, Colorado lies just West of Denver at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Founded during the Pike's Peak gold rush, it was used as a mining camp
These photos were taken in November when I visited there. I particularly like this welcoming sign spanning the main street and proclaiming "Where the West lives".
Linked to ABC Wednesday

I think my grandparents took me thru Golden on our trip to Colorado when I was a kid, but I can't remember for sure. I know we visited Colorado Springs, cuz we went to the Air Force Base there & it was the 1st time I saw soldiers marching, saying, "Left, left, left, right, left!" LoL! They also sang some kind of rhyming song, but I can't remember the words.

I've seen the captcha video, but I'm just thinking that maybe they're having us do the work & they're getting out of paying employees to do what we're doing & getting paid millions to sell those books... I'm just not real sure what to think about it.

Love the charm of the mountains. I think I went through there years ago. I like the Western feel of it.

That's such a lovely name for a town! And I like that the first photo is in golden light. I bet it wasn't as civilized a town during the gold rush as it appears to be now.

Very beautiful town. All the places are just amazing. Have you visited Luray, VA?

Linnea said...

Golden looks like a fun place to explore with your camera! Love the name!

Your pictures show the gold on the mountains, although I guess the name comes from the actually metal that was mined there...

The arch gives a nice effect. I like how it frames the mountains.
