Dinner at The Fort near Denver

Zeb the Duck here and I am very happy.  My Alaska cousin, Eider and his dad, are flying to Denver today.  Mom and I picked them up at Denver International Airport.  This is a very big airport.  Denver_International_AirportThe design is to represent the high mountain peaks of the Rocky Mountains.

The blue horse at the airport is an original and well known to travelers using Denver’s airport.

Eider and I and our humans visited The Fort restaurant in nearby Morrison, Colorado for dinner.  They specialize in Colorado beef, wild game and fish.  We started with warm bread and pumpkin nut rolls.

The salads were large, fresh and crisp and very tasty.  The humans ordered a featured meal consisting of a buffalo medallion, an elk chop, and quail breast, served with Montana huckleberry sauce.

So much food

It was very tasty and we were all pleasantly full.

After dinner, we explored the restaurant.  The bartender was very friendly and invited us to pose on the bar.

Adjoining the bar was an additional lounge.  The smaller tables had colorful cloths

where humans, and ducks,  can sit, chat and enjoy a beverage and snack.   The lounge had a wooden model of Noah’s Ark.

Over the door leaving this lounge we saw this jackalope.

They humans just laughed as we asked where jackalopes live.  Must be a human joke.   In another room we saw this buffalo mount on a wall.

Buffalo sure are big!  These are huge horns over the grill.

Huge horns.  We feel so small.

It was dark when we left the restaurant.  We liked this fire pit.

Contained fires are very warm and inviting.  They even had a statue of a polar bear.
