Colorado's Ocean Journey

Denver's new public aquarium, "Colorado's Ocean Journey", is going to open
Monday June 21, after deven years of planning and construction. The Sunday
Rocky Mountain News has a 24 page feature section on it and it looks great!

The theme is how water gets from mountain sources to the ocean ("ocean
journey"). There are two sections: Colorado (source in rockies, trout
streams, forest streams, desert ares, Sea of Cortez) and Sumatra (mountain,
jungle, estuary, deep  ocean). 

There are sea otters in the Colorado side and Sumatran tigers in the other
side. It has the obligatory shark tank. The Sumatran has loads of aquarium
style fish. I don't know about aquatic plants - we'll have to see it. 

Yet another thing to do in the Rocky Mountains on your summer vacation.
