Birthdays for the Malcolm family are always a day of celebration, food, and fun. We celebrated Eric’s 48th birthday with a night of music under the stars in an extraordinary place.
We started with a the day with a little comfort food and a few beers at The Old Capital Grill in Golden, Colorado. We then headed south to Morrison, a little town with a big event venue, Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Red Rock Amphitheater- Morrison, CO
At an elevation of 6,450 ft, we enjoyed a night at the symphony with the final summer season performance of the Colorado Symphony, titled “End on a High Note.” Our first time to Red Rock Amphitheater, and we were amazed at view, the acoustics, the history…and of course, the music.
Red Rocks is a geologically formed, open-air Amphitheater, the only one like it in the world. Designed and constructed by Mother Nature, the Amphitheatre consists of two, three hundred-foot ancient monoliths (Ship Rock and Creation Rock) which provide acoustic perfection. There was also an on-site museum of the historical past which included performers and evidence of the dinosaurs that once walked among the red rocks.
There are also hiking trails within the Red Rocks “park”. The Will Call Trail, an easy hiking trail, entertains those who arrive early at the Will Call window (that would be us) and want to do a little exploring. Red Rocks Amphitheater and Park is free and open to the public daily.
We would have to say, Red Rocks tops our list of coolest places for a concert!
Music makes the world go-round!
Happy Birthday Eric.
Eric and Lori Malcolm
