4 of 4

I should be telling you about our adventures on the Western Slope, but I'll save that for another day.

I found this little bit of fun over on Judy's site. Here's what you do:
- Go to the folder in which you keep your digital photos.
- Choose the fourth folder.
- Find the fourth picture in that folder.
- Explain.
- Tag four people.

Here is my 4th picture, in my 4th folder.

This whole folder is dedicated to our excursion to downtown Denver for the 5 Points Jazz Festival. 5 Points is one of many "ethnic" (in lack of a better word) neighborhoods in Denver. This particular neighborhood thrives with African American history, pride and culture. We ventured downtown both to hear the music, see the art and also meet my wonderful fellow hydro-mama, Vidya, for the first time.
The picture is of the Blair-Caldwell Library, a branch of the Denver Public Library, which is smack-dab in the middle of the 5 Points District. We stopped in to browse their collection and ended up discovering that they had a great board book selection, so we came home with bags full of books. I also found out that they have a great permanent exhibit on African Americans in the West on the 3rd floor of the library. Caitlin, Cara and I walked through the exhibit, learning what life was like for African Americans at pinnacle times in our nation's history (homesteaders, infantrymen, etc). If you're ever in Denver, I highly recommend that you stop by and visit the library and this exhibit.

As for the four people I'm tagging:
Four people who have digital photos, need blogging material, and want to share.
