After a little discussion, Chris realised we could ride out of Boulder, Colorado, pick up the Peak to Peak Highway a little way north of its southern end and take this route north to le Poudre River. This saves a whole day and meant we could stay longer with Richard and Mariannne.
With that resolved Richard drove us all into the Denver Art Museum to see the King Tutenkhamun exhibition. This was a well presented exhibition of antiquities from Egypt with many objects related to Tut or found in his tomb.
Following this we surrendered to our hunger pangs and ate lunch in the very elegant Museum restaurant
before heading to the permanent collection to take in some of their very fine Western art.
