I went for a ride to Red Rocks Park where the Red Rocks Amphitheater is. It was a pleasant easy ride.
I drove out on Alameda Avenue because I wanted to drive over Dinosaur Ridge at the south end of Dinosaur open space park but when I got there the road was barricaded and was only open to hikers. I found my way into Golden and took State Highway 26 south to Red Rocks Park.
I've been reading "Proficient Motorcycling" by David L. Hough so was paying a lot more attention to how I make my turns, take curves and to other traffic. In addition to my helmet I also wore boots and my riding jacket.
There were a lot of other people in the park too. I almost didn't stop but then I remembered that I had my little camera with me so I pulled over and snapped a few photos. I asked someone if there was an activity in the amphitheater but he confirmed my suspicion that we were all out sightseeing. I didn't go into the amphitheater.
After I left the park I continued south to the little community of Morrison then followed Morrison Road into Lakewood and Denver. I made my daily "sweep" of Cheesman Park (he says with a "wink and a nod") before returning home.
