So what is so pragmatistic about being Jonathan Davis?

Denver Rocks (Pun Intended)

[LINK] (Picture Gallery)

In September I was asked to speak at a conference in Denver. I spoke about blogging to a few hundred government webmasters. I also learned something...there is a reason Greensboro truly is "Blogsboro", we live in a bubble. Everyone had so many questions about blogging, and the concept of a "blogger meet-up" was like candy to a few I talked to.

On the last day of the conference I teamed up with a couple of friends, one of which lived in the area, and we went to the mountains.

When we left Denver we were at 5,200 feet, and it was 86F degrees. We drove to Mt. Evans which tops out above 14,220 which is also the highest paved road in North America. We had to stop at about 13,000 feet because of snow on the road.

We stopped along the way at Bear Creek, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and Goliath Peak. After hiking at Goliath Peak (12,220 feet) I have a whole new appreciation for low oxygen at high altitude.

By contrast Mount Mitchell in NC has a height of 6,684 feet.
If I ever decide to move across country, Colorado will have my attention.
