The taxi is about to drop me off at the United check-in counters so that I can drop my bag. Check out the iconic tent roof of the airport. Confession : I’m not a total fan of the look of it.

Here’s a close-up of the beams and connectors that keep the sail of the roof in place. The new construction may simply be a new parking garage at the airport; I’m not sure.

DIA stands for Denver International Airport. Back in the ’90s when the newly opened airport had trouble with the baggage carousels, a sarcastic newspaper heading read : ‘DIA is DOA’. I did not get a rental car for this trip – so it was great to just sit back in the taxi.  It’s been a blue sky and cool weather week; a welcome respite for the Boulder residents that have to clean up after the flooding.
