Great American Road Trip - Day 16 (6/9) - Denver to St. Louis

I was in no particular rush this morning, so I didn't check out of the hotel until after 10:30.  Seeking Sunday brunch, I drove to Swift's Breakfast House and ate there.  After brunch I drove to the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum to kill some time before the Rockies game at 2:10.  I arrived 10 minutes before they opened at noon, and hung around for about 1.5 hours.

After my time at the (mediocre) museum, I drove over to Coors Field, or more specifically the B lot about a mile away, and attended the Rockies vs Padres game.  I got to my seat in the second inning and left for the airport after the sixth.  By that time I was pretty well drenched in sweat (my upper level seat was directly in the sunlight, and at 90° F it was the hottest day of the trip), though that was the case even 15 minutes after I was seated.  Luckily, moisture evaporates quickly in the Denver air, and I was presentable by the time I reached the Budget lot.  When I returned the rental car it had accumulated 4701 miles (and an illuminated "maintenance required" light) from my entire trip.  I took the shuttle to the airport, and ended the trip by flying home to St. Louis.
