Last Thursday Preston, myself and 7 of our dearest friends went to Denver Colorado for the day to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The concert was originally scheduled for March 3rd earlier this year but got canceled and rescheduled for September 27th (which worked out really excellent for me because I was admitted into the hospital late the night of the 3rd and I was really happy to have my sweetheart and friends come and be with me)!
The majority of our group drove to Denver Wednesday evening but because we had to be back in good time on Friday Preston, Elliot, Alyssa and myself flew out the following morning.
here we are waiting for our shuttle - ironically the man who was waiting for the same shuttle and took this photo for us was in my photo class at UVU last summer
waiting to board our lovely 61 minute flight to d-d-d-denver!
Our faithful friends Mike and Ben dutifully picked us up from the airport from which we picked up the rest of our group and with 9 packed (safely) into a minivan went into the city for some good old fashion tourism and photo taking.

After three hours of screaming songs, dancing like mad and gagging on our neighbors weed smoke we made a very fitting trip to a local Denny's and picked the food items that would make us feel most sick, which we were very successful at!
We lucked out to have a place to crash for a couple hours (Ben and Taylors sister lives near Denver), and when I say a couple, I mean a couple! We got in at about 1:30 and slept till five, left at 5:15 for the airport where we shortly boarded our 6:17 flight to SLC.. was it worth it? INDEED IT WAS!
Shuttle back to the car from the SLC airport in the early morning hours
BASICALLY it was the best 20 hours ever.
Well all, look forward to a post from Presto covering the rest of the week and it's ventures!
