Show & Tell: Hallooo, Red Roques!

by Lori Lavender Luz on February 11, 2010

in Denver,Show & Tell

Whenever we have out of town guests, we take them to nearby Red Rocks amphitheater, climb down to the stage and pretend we are British rock stars.

We took visitors there recently and I took a couple of non-amphitheater photos of these breathtakingly beautiful geologic formations:

And for some context for the title of this post, here ya go:

See the cool stuff my classmates are showing and telling over at Mel’s Show & Tell.

What beautiful pictures! Almost looks like Sedona (I actually clicked on the link to see if it was).

Oh my GOD.

THIS is the post I come to first, as I am currently playing catchup with everybodys blogs.

THIS post, Lozza. It’s a total sign. That you are a complete Goddamn beautiful legend. XOXOXOX

PS I LOVE your new rings, just beautiful.

I’ve heard of this wonderful place, but never been. Love the icicle pic!


areyoukiddingme April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

I’ve been there! The best part was when we were rolling backwards down the road, because we were learning to drive a stick shift and couldn’t get the car going in first gear. Oops.

It’s beautiful there, though.


Bionic Baby Mama April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

agreed, on both counts! thanks for posting this — it’s great to learn about new places to have on my if-i-ever-get-to-x list.


Quiet Dreams April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

Looks like an amazing place. I love the shot with the icicles.


B April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

It looks beautiful. But a bit cold for a girl who lives in temperate clime! Icicles off rocks. Wow.

And thanks for the trip down memory lane. Do you think U2 provided the soundtrack for every gen x’ers coming of age?

You can see why though, when you look at the vid.


Sandy April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

Gorgeous pictures! I love red rocks, although I’ve never been to a concert there.


Hilary April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

I love Red Rocks! One of my favorite places on earth.


Kristin April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

Oh what wonderful pictures. I’ve read about this place but have never seen pictures of it.


Fishsticks and Fireflies April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

I am going to have to remedy the fact that I have never been up there in the winter – those pictures are amazing! Red Rocks is such an awesome venue – the scenery, the intimacy . . . just awesome.

Have you ever gone up for Film on the Rocks? It almost pains me to go see a movie in the theater when I know that I could wait a few years and maybe get to see it there!


Baby Smiling In Back Seat April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

Some major acts that usually play bigger venues make a point of always playing Red Rocks when they tour, and with good reason.

Hopefully someday I can accompany you!


Sheri April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

I saw my first BIG concert at Red Rocks. Good memories!

The photos are beautiful!


Martha April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

This is gorgeous, great photos.
Red Rocks Rock!
Happy Valentime’s Day to the Luz’s loves, super cute btw. Mwah!


Mama Zen April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

Beautiful pictures! When I think of Red Rocks, I always think of U2.


Wishing 4 One April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

Gorgeous. Reminds me of Sedona in Arizona. How I loved that place.


luna April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

wow, I thought it was beautiful in sunshine but it is so gorgeous in snow!


..Soo.See.. April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

Oh how pretty! I’ve never heard of it, but now I’m interested! :) Off to research!


Flying Monkeys April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

The photos make me want to go even more than I already do. I’ve always wanted to go to a concert at Red Rocks. Maybe some day.
Thanks for sharing.


battynurse April 7, 2010 at 5:56 am

Wow, those are beautiful.


Tami April 7, 2010 at 5:57 am

My greatest memory of Red Rocks is Easter Sunrise Service. But wait. I do that with you.

My second greatest memory of Red Rocks is seeing the Go Go’s in concert. But wait. I did that with you.

My third greatest memory of Red Rocks is climbing the stairs. But wait. I’ve never done that with you. Maybe this spring?


MrsSpock April 7, 2010 at 5:57 am

Gorgeous, even in winter!


Sunny April 7, 2010 at 5:57 am

Ooooh, hubby and I would *love* to go to Red Rocks for a concert. It sounds/looks awesome!

And speaking of looking awesome, love your new picture. HOTTIE!
