Did you use a tripod? That's really good if you were holding the camera.

I was there too. 18 years old, first red rocks shows for me.

While my initiation was via several spring/summer/fall '77 shows in the midwest, I followed that with making the drive to red rocks (and McNichols) for many years. After a few years off I made my way out again in '87... and spent a tragic night in Chief Hosa. The overdose of a camper (I did not know him) convinced me to go home rather than continue to follow the trail for what turned out to be an epic show in Telluride.
Those early trips are how I discovered Morrison, Evergreen, Kittredge, and other surrounding mountain towns west of Denver. I live here now. I wanted my son to have the colorado rockies out-of-doors experience growing up.
