Photo of the Day – Coors Field, Denver

It’s not just cities, islands and countries on my travel wish list…I also have sort of a stadium “bucket list.” Last week in Denver I had a chance to check one of those off my list. Named for the Coors Brewing Company of Golden, Colorado, Coors Field is home to Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies. By far the highest ballpark in the majors, it’s considered the most hitter-friendly park in the league because balls travel farther in the thinner air. Though most of the stadium seats are dark green, those in the 20th row of the upper deck are purple marking the city’s one-mile elevation point. Coors Field also features a Blue Moon Microbrewery and a landscape area behind the center field wall that reflects the typical environment of the Rocky Mountains complete with pine trees, a waterfall and fountains that shoot high into the air after a Rockies home run or win.
