Were you abustle with activity this week Denver? We sure were over here. Come on down the visual rabbit hole with us once again:

OK, so yesterday was a great day. I saw one of Denver's iconic species of window cat...

...and also a stunning sunset. Did you see it too?

5280's Denise Mickelsen captured what her tastebuds experienced at Cherry Creek's new restaurant, Quality Italian.

Erica asked and learned that Colorado Treasurer Walker Stapleton is not running for governor – yet, at least.

We actually had a bunch of stuff going on at the Capitol this week. On Wednesday, we watched a line full of women completely encircle the building in solidarity on International Women's Day.

Floating back to the fun stuff, Ashley discovered some tropical goodness at Adrift on Broadway.

I hung out with a handful of tigers, one of whom peed above a crowd of dignitaries at the zoo.

A trip to Ruby Hill yielded the most Colorado thing ever: sledding in a T-shirt on a most warm and lovely day.

Then there's this weird bank on Broadway. Did you know it has a famous cousin? Denverite investigated this week.

We discovered crazy pretty light in the Denver Police Brotherhood boxing gym.

And the Denver Post's Helen Richardson found some graceful light of her own at the Youth America Grand Prix ballet scholarship competition.

And then there's Saturday, which was another intense day of political action. First was a pro-Trump rally that was interrupted by angry anarchist protesters.

Following that was an anti-deportation rally that took over Emerson Street and Louisiana Avenue bridges.

Of course, after all of that public rage I needed to cool down, so I went and rode a bunch of toy trains (via my camera, I mean) at the Denver Mart and everything felt OK after that.
