Destination One: Denver

What city is in a different climate, time zone, and would certainly have a different weather map? A city that is, well, somewhat close to my current home of Indianapolis? I’ve been to Denver on business a few times years ago, but those were weekday trips and I really didn’t have an opportunity to explore the region. You know, like go over to Pikes Peak, or up to Wyoming, or down to Colorado Springs. One limiting factor of going on vacation is getting the chance to really explore the region.
