A trip on the light rail

Friday on Earth Day the light rail line from Union Station in downtown Denver to the Denver International Airport opened for travel.  In celebration and orientation all rides were free!!!  Who doesn't love that???  So Kate and I made an adventure of it:  We caught the train at our closest station; rode to the airport; toured the station there and the new fabulous Westin hotel; then rode straight back to Union Station and explored the ice cream shop and the Tattered Cover bookstore.  We had a day of it and lots of fun.

On the way home I asked Kate if she thought there would every be a time when we didn't enjoy doing things like this together.  "That would be never"

Great photos. I love travelling by train. Much nicer than planes.
