A Quaint Trip to the Colorado State Capitol

Last year, Seth helped our friend Ray Scott run for a seat in the Colorado House of Representative which he won.  Seth and I both were talking about how weird it is that he and I have lived the majority of our lives in Colorado and still have never been to our state capitol.  With Ray actually working at the capitol, we figured we’d stop by and see our hard-earned tax dollars at work. 

We scored a sweet parking spot right outside the capitol for 50 cents/hour (which happened to be right next to a lot that was $12/hour–SCORE!)

We learned several things from our visit.  #1: Not every state uses their capitol building.  For example, Arizona built two rather plain buildings right next to their state capitol building (which is now a museum). #2: Out of respect, you cannot wear your hat in the building; Seth was asked to take his hat off, and you’ll see in one of the pics below a rare glimpse of Seth’s unclad head.

    We went to the capital building on a choir trip (this was before your days at Mesa, Short) and of COURSE we sang the national anthem for everyone to hear upstairs right in the middle of the place. Ha ha!
