city’s innovative FasTracks initiative moves forward. Cherry Creek Trail winds its way around the city and


offers a beautiful, relaxing walk away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Of course, it wasn’t always so relaxing. Back in the gold rush days, a flash flood swept down Cherry Creek, killing 20 people and causing a million dollars in damage. Don’t worry; flash floods aren’t going to happen these days. You can take your time, either on foot or on a bike, enjoying the peaceful feeling the creek imparts. No gold rush tour of Denver would be complete without a stop by the house of its most famous prospector, Molly Brown. Margaret “Molly” Brown gained wealth during Denver’s gold rush days and fame as a Titanic survivor, earning her the nickname, “Unsinkable Molly”. Te Molly Brown House museum contains original furnishings and mementos including furniture, china, silver, artwork, pho- tographs and textiles. Te Colorado State Capitol Building wasn’t completed until the early 20th century, but it serves as a perfect cap to our tour of Denver’s gold rush past, because of that sparkly stuff you see on the dome. Yep, it’s gold, 24-karat gold to be exact. You can tour the building and get all the way up to the top of the dome for an unparalleled view of the Mile High City and the Rocky Mountain Front Range. Celebrate Colorado’s glorious landscapes on a three-sto-


rey multimedia presentation. Traverse an 24-metre map of the state using a “time machine”. Virtually travel the plains
