“I remember driving through downtown Denver and out and past the Coors Brewery. The main road quickly turned into a single lane in each direction. A small river ran next to the road and the water level was high due to the melting snow from the mountain. The scenery was almost post-card perfect. I continued to drive a short distance when a sign warned of a small tunnel ahead. Sure enough, the tunnel appeared.
As I entered the tunnel, I noticed that there were no lights and it was very dark. I soot exited the dark tunnel to see the most beautiful sight that I have ever seen in my life. To be honest, the only thought that came to me at that moment was, ‘There has to be a God. No man is capable of creating such beauty.’ I often return to that memory…I hope to return to that spot someday, because I realize now it was where I truly found God.”
