Hello again!
I know I recently posted the Springfield show and now on to the next adventure. Jim and I drove to Denver on Wednesday, Sept 16th. Show set up was the next day. We had a large display case of minerals of the southwest United States.

...The set up day is fascinating. You get to see so much activity and visiting is usually saved for after the cases are closed.


I'd like to dedicate this photo tour to Dave Bunk, by the way. Dave is in hospital getting chemo for his cancer and we wish him the very best. I expect Dave will enjoy the show through my lens at least!
