Red Rocks, rocks!

Vacations & Travel - - Travel talk -

Only in Colorado could you discover a 122-me­tre nat­u­ral am­phithe­atre set amid a na­tional park and the beau­ti­ful, haunted chants of the Ute Na­tion, who once in­hab­ited the High Plains. Be­yond its ochre, sand­stone walls and rich cul­tural his­tory is a cap­ti­vat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence – none more so than a Red Rocks con­cert. Re­cently des­ig­nated as a Na­tional His­toric Land­mark by the Na­tional Park Ser­vice, Red Rocks has seen some of the world’s lead­ing rock artists play live in its 9,000-seat the­atre – from the Bea­tles, Neil Young and U2, to the Rolling Stones, Grate­ful Dead and Jimi Hen­drix. But if you pre­fer to embrace the nat­u­ral set­ting, you can hike, go on horse­back or moun­tain bike along the many park trails. You can even do a yoga class at sun­rise or view a cult-classic film on a colos­sal cin­e­matic screen. Other note­wor­thy pit stops you should con­sider are at the Trad­ing Post and Ship Rock Grill, where you can grab a seat on the edge of a moun­tain­ous panorama and taste some of Colorado’s buf­falo tamales smoth­ered in hot, green chilli. den­; re­drock­son­
