The Red Rocks formation is one of the great sights in Colorado. It’s just 15 miles from us and we made a whole day of it. The weather was perfect for the outing so Mommy and Grandma packed a picnic. It’s all a natural formation which makes it amazing. Grandpa had fun scampering all around it. There’s a huge slab of rock tilting up like the back wall of theater and big outcroppings form walls for the right and left sides of the “stage.” It’s such a perfect setting that the City of Denver bought it in 1927 and was putting on productions by 1941. But Daddy says the Ute Indians were using it way before that.
