Cool Denver WorldCon pictures

I've finally gotten my pictures from August's WorldCon in Denver organized and posted. These include both Con pictures and scenic/around-town pictures.

Still to come are my scenic pictures of elsewhere in Colorado.

A few highlights:

Pictures taken on the drive from Denver to Durango, CO, and in the Durango area. Besides mountains and rocks there are pictures of wildflowers, streams/cascades, and Pam's pets. This is a very large picture set!

Pam is a great hostess and tour guide. And also great at helping to identify photos after the fact (thanks!).

Here are a few highlights:


Fritillary butterflies on thistle


Berries before a cascade


Little Molas Lake and surrounding mountains


Sunset

WorldCon is in a different location every year, so you'll miss out if you head to Denver next year! In 2009 it'll be in Montreal, and in 2010 it's in Melbourne!

Unfortunately, it's unlikely to be in Denver again for a long time. In the 66 years of WorldCon it's been in Denver three times. WorldCon is one of the cons that changes city every year. Next year it's in Montreal and 2010 it's in Melbourne Australia. Reno and Seattle are bidding for 2011.

Edit: As I was writing this Cheryl posted her answer, so you can feel twice as full of random information
