Around REI in Denver

Our next stop was the REI (Recreational Equipment Incorporated) store in downtown Denver. (Think Bass Pro shop.)  In a word: HUGE. It is in an old (1901) powerhouse beside the river. We found shopping on three (sometimes disconnected) floors.

Yes, that is a rock climbing wall in the middle.

There had been--and continues to be-- a lot of rain in eastern Colorado and, along with the snow melt, the rivers and creeks are running full. People were white-water canoeing and kayaking in back of the store.

Around the corner from the store, Mona was smiling, watching it all.
