The view driving into Red Rock Amphitheater Park and walking up from the parking lot.
Birds in the parking lot. A towhee, magpies and a first for me was the western scrub jay on the left. He was very skittish.
After leaving the amphitheater we walked around the park for a while. We took a short trail right off the parking lot. Even from the parking area, the views were amazing.
Heading into the famous Red Rocks amphitheater was a jaw dropper for someone who hasn’t spent a lot of time out west. Not just the rocks and the view but to see a concert here would be amazing. The hike up the main ramp was incredible although I can imagine at night you just want to get there so you can see the band you came to hear. Most people who grew up there probably doesn’t stop to look at the view. My husband thought the big rock in the 3rd picture looked like a dinosaur head.
We came in from the side of the stage and then walked up to the top.
Brett took a picture of me taking a picture of something with my phone. I had heard that when the park is open (on days when there is not a concert scheduled) you can come in and walk up and down the stairs. I saw several people doing that.
View from the top of downtown Denver.
Pano of the area.
More to come on this fun place. There’ an actual park around the amphitheater that has trails you can hike. We did a little hiking but was on a tight schedule so we didn’t go too far.
