Mrs. Colardo portrayed by my amazing wife, Stephanie, chowing down on a cheeseburger, which was invented in Denver by Louis Ballast in 1935. In her other hand, sits one of my favorite beers, Dale's Pale Ale by Oskar Blues, based out of Longmont, CO. I recently found out, they have this hanging in one of their offices! Within the circle background is the rock formation known as Devil's Thumb as well as the sculpture, Blue Mustang. The horse can be seen in front of the Denver airport - it's deep blue, veiny body with glowing red-orange eyes has created much controversy within the state. It's creator, Luis Jimenez, died when a portion of the statue fell on top of him while he was working on it in his studio, severing an artery in his leg and killing him. Part of the sculpture had to be rebuilt due to the damage it incurred in the fall - the sculpture ending up being 2 years late and cost over twice the initial commission price of $300,000, DAMN!!! Sandhill Cranes fly above, they can be spotted in Monte Vista (the San Luis Valley area) during their migration that takes place in late February & early March.
