The folks were disappointed in the tour. It was self-guided and nothing was happening. I guess if you take the tour during the week, you actually see product being made.
We are from the St. Louis area and Mom has taken the Anheuser Busch tour a few times and said it was 100% better.
|This was in the restroom. Mom thought it was blog-worthy. :::snicker:::|
|Display in the lobby|
|Some of the Coor products.|
|Packaging, but nothing was being packaged.|
|After the tour, samples were given out.|
|A view from the brewery.|
|The dining room.|
|The famous bathtub!!!|
|One of the bedrooms.|
|View from the balcony. The balcony had to be removed due to people spitting on people on the streets. All balconies in Golden were ordered to be removed because of this. It was re-added back in the 70's when the house was deemed a historic building.|

|One more view.|
The Greyhound Who Didn't Partake In Beer Or A Bath

|Dreaming of how all the other dogs will love him because he brought treats to their walks.|
|This is the dog walk.|
|Notice how our "mountain" doesn't have snow, but the real mountains do.|
|We have a nice view when the site next to us is empty. Mom hopes the blue skirting comes off soon on the fifth wheel.|
|We saw a rainbow last night from our window.|
The Greyhound Who Finds Walking With Muddy Paws Difficult
Friday, April 17, 2015
Our morning walk was strange because we would walk on snow and then sink into water. It was not fun. I guess it is just hard to predict the weather here. They were predicting that the mountains would get 1-3 feet. We are not sure how much they got, but I-70 was shutdown yesterday and today due to accidents.
Since our morning walk was not fun, Mom told us to hibernate until afternoon. We did. I slept by the fireplace and Scout took the folks' bed. She thinks that is her bed. She even started taking treats in there, but Mom doesn't let her anymore because she leaves crumbs behind. She only sleeps in the bed when there are no humans in the bed. She is still determining her sleep number. She seems to like her butt on Dad's side and her head on Mom's side. Dad is a 50 and Mom is a 35.
|This was this morning. It had started raining and the snow was melting.|
|Trying to sleep the snow away.|
|The elk came out in search of food this afternoon.|
|See the elk on the hill. This is near the dog walk.|
|More elk at the top of the hill. We estimate there were 60-70.|
|These photos were all taken in the afternoon. Our dog walk is flooded.|
The Greyhound Who Is Glad We Are Not Staying In The Mountains

|Molly Brown's House. She paid $30,000 for this house.|
Molly actually went by the name of Margaret. She became a millionaire due to her husband working as a superintendent in a mine in Leadville, CO. They were given shares of the company and overnight, they became very rich. They bought the house in Denver shortly thereafter.
Molly was a women who was living in the wrong time. She is more like a woman of today than in the 1800's. She actually ran for Senate which was unheard of for a woman of her time. Her husband was not happy. He said a woman's name should only appear in the paper three times; her birth, her wedding and her death. She withdrew from the race. She and her husband later separated, but they never divorced.
Mom said the tour of the house lasted an hour and it was fun. Pictures were not allowed to be taken inside. Here is a gallery of some of the items as well as more information about Molly. Molly Brown House

The Greyhound Who Is Waiting For The Predicted Snow To Arrive
Wednesday, April 8, 2015
Yep, it is our month! We wanted to post the YouTube video that Cal, the greyhound, did several years ago, but it is not working. It is supposed to air on TV this month, but if you want to see it now, just go to YouTube and type in Cal, the greyhound. It is cute.
|I think I would make a good greyhound spokesman. Don't you?|
We are getting into our routine here. Yesterday, we walked up a "mountain". Dad didn't believe that Scout did it. Today, she decided to stay behind, but yesterday she did it. We don't have any proof though.
|We climbed all the way to the top.|
|Supposedly, there are three miles of trails. We have to stay on the lookout for rattlers. We haven't seen any yet. We have seen some big animal foot prints.|
|Our rig is down there!|
There are so many bunnies here! We saw seven on our walk last night.
|There are four bunnies here.|
|There is a seating area up here.|
|Mom says we will not be going up there because of the steps. They are pretty steep.|
|A little house on wheels!|
|The view from our windshield.|
