Golden Triangle alley off Speer, Denver 2009

I have never found anything better than an alley to focus the mind.  Alley by Steuben's in Uptown Denver They call to me the way a remnant patch of suburban woods called when I was a child.

Alley off 17th Avenue, Uptown Denver 2009

What’s in there? What’s at the end?

A hitch in my step:
I leave the mystery for another day.

    I am hugely allergic to those weeds with the yellow flowers in the third photo. Are they blooming already? Normally they don’t flower until late March.

    Yes, Bernard, Denver is a clean city. 🙂 Or something.

    Todd, that picture was taken in October, which is when ragweed or goldenrod blooms. There is a native plant that looks like ragweed by isn’t.
