RTD Weekend

Rode the new commuter rail to DIA on Saturday and spent the night in the new Westin DIA hotel. Et some expensive food and watched planes land and take off. My kinda weekend!

 First, we parked teh Tribby at a lite rail station and hopped on the H train to downtown.

Then we rode the free Mall Ride up 16th Street Mall to Union Station. Lots of folks had the same idea.

 Time to grab lunchie at a new restaurant in the remodeled Union Station.

 Ruben is a friend of mine!

 The revitalized Union Station looks abolutely FABOO!

 90,000 peeps rode the free (for a couple days) A Line to the airport. Most of 'em were in our line. Luckily, the line moved fast.

 This type of commuter rail has been around for a while, but it's a first for DenBRRRR. It joins the popular lite rail system. More lite rail will come on line later this year.

 Whisking along to DIA.

 Some people think the Weston at DIA is kinda weird looking.

 One of the lobbies at the new hotel, looking toward the main airport terminal building.

 The train platform seen from the hotel. The artwork is logs made from beetle kill trees. Sadly, Colorady has lots of trees killed by beetles, since recent winters have been too warm.

 Looking down on lots of peeps waiting to board the train to return to Union Station. We had a great view from the 12th floor room.

 The hotel room was done up in neutral shades of beige, brown, off white...

 A cold front blowed in, giving us a nice sky to look at. Mebby with the new train, all them peeps won't have to pay the high parking fees to park in these massive lots and garages.

 Gotta watch some hockey!

 The airport terminal lit up at night.

 I ain't satisfied with our condoh bathroom. I want one that looks like this 'un.

 There's jalapeno bison sausage in there.

 Pikes Peak can be seen from the hotel.

 Here's them beetle killeded logs I mentioned.

Sunday, time to return home. This time the train rides cost 9 bucks.
