I think I may know where the picture was taken, PHeymont, if that's the church in the rocks (forget the exact name) over on the very left of the picture. If so, had friends who lived in that development years ago, Bell Rock to the south if I remember correctly. I haven't been there for many years now. Memoreees.

PortMoresby ·
Well, that's a surprise! No, doesn't look familiar, appears to be in town rather than south of town as I was expecting. Looking at a map, it says Chapel of the Holy Cross, where I thought you were, unless it's changed utterly, which it could have of course. It's been a while.

GarryRF ·
We always think of lifeless deserts but when you get in there its amazing what you find. Some wonderful cactus pictures too. I enjoy getting close to those layers of rock. The colours and the shells. A million years of history. And no one saying "Don't touch"

I was just out there 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately didn't get to see a concert yet heard it's an amazing place. There are so many artist whom have performed there.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, August 27, 2015: Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Red Rocks Park, Colorado

DrFumblefinger ·
It's a great summary of a fun place to visit. Besides the amphitheater, there's a drive through the park which takes you by other red rock formations. The park isn't that large, but it is memorable. If you're looking for a place to eat, the amphitheater offers an outdoor terrace restaurant with great views of the Red Rock.

Thanks for your feedback Mytraveledroad and DrFumblefinger. I hope to one day see a concert at this venue. I had a blast just exploring the empty amphitheater, I can only imagine what a thrill it would be to actually see a concert there.

Thanks for a great piece on a great amphitheater! A really cool restaurant is very close ,The Fort, and I'd highly recommend it if you see Red Rocks again. In the 90's , President Clinton took the G-8 summit up to have dinner there. http://thefort.com/the-history-of-the-fort/

Some of those settings look familiar. Maybe a few old cowboy films were shot there. Las Vegas with its free beer is too hot for summer. Would not tackle those rocks on a sunny day ! Would love to treck through in the Autumn.

You are correct, GarryRF. There have been a number of movies filmed in the park.

It has provided a setting for the following films and television shows: The Professionals with Burt Lancaster , Lee Marvin , and Claudia Cardinale was filmed in 1966. As of November 2012 a piece of the movie set is still up for...

Thanks DrF. I can remember Lee Marvin as the angry young man - so it must have been a few years ago. The heat of summer in Vegas is just not nice. Must be what's meant by a "Seasoned Traveller" When we go at just the right time of year. Like the word "Posh" Port Out - Starboard Home To keep a cool cabin on a round trip to India on the sea.
