Denver Day 2

Great day of reporting in Denver followed by food on the mall.

Mile high


I’m in Denver for a week of reporting on The Colorado Sun and the Denver media ecosystem. And the food is outstanding at Henry’s Tavern. That’s a copy of Westword, the city’s still-kicking alt-weekly, on the left.

Feeling like fall

Biked 23-plus miles along the Minuteman Bikeway, end to end, and back via the Alewife Brook Greenway. Check out the fall colors at Great Meadows. Soon it will be snowing!

Biking along the Battle Road Trail

I tried out my new Sony point-and-shoot camera during a 10-mile bike ride, out and back, along the Battle Road Trail earlier today. I picked up the camera so I could document places I travel to over the next year for Ellen Clegg’s and my book project. The results were much better than I can get from a phone — especially inside shots. Overall, I was pretty happen with the results.

Eastern end

There are lots of these along the road. It was a tough day for the British.
