Taste of Colorado

We went to A Taste of Colorado yesterday on Labor Day, located in the beautiful Civic Center Park/Capitol Hill area. It was really fun. The weather was nice and there were hundreds of people.

It was so hot on the walk back to the lightrail station that I could not resist stopping by Pinkberry to have some yummy yogurt. All for cooling-down purposes, of course :).

Delicious pomegranate yogurt from Pinkberry

One of the lightrail stops has all these old trains on display. They looked really cool. I love the colors.

We came home feeling good, with our tummy full from too much good food and our skin tanned from the sun. A good ending to a good day out.


  1. Jenn.. thanks for sharing... unlike you guys, we had rain over the weekend and it was overcast most of it as well.. so no fun in the sun for us! your pictures are wonderful! I can see how much you are enjoying your new toy!

  2. I had an urge to write "that's my favorite" about each and every food photo. Thanks for taking us along.

  3. We have a similar event in Tucson, officially called "Tucson Meet Yourself," but affectionately called "Tucson Eat Yourself."

  4. Monica, thanks for the comments. I hope it'll stop raining there soon...

    Lois, what a funny name "Tucson Eat Yourself." Taste of Colorado could been called that too - it was hard not to overeat.

  6. baby, this is my first comment on your blog. Love the pictures, nice camera work!!!

  7. As always, the pictures are gorgeous. I think you pretty much captured the essence of the Taste of Colorado. Almost feel like I was there (without feeling bloated, ha ha).

  8. Wonderful photos and looks like a fabulous event. So many yummy choices!

  9. great photo reportage!
