By askdotcom // June 24th, 2013


Today’s photo of the day challenge evokes thoughts of warm summer nights at outdoor concerts. As such we asked, can you guess which landmark amphitheater is?

If you said Colorado favorite Red Rocks, you were correct!

Red Rocks Ampitheater is a rock structure near Morrison Colorado, where concerts are given int he open-air ampitheater. It is comprised of a large disc-shaped rock behind the stage, a huge vertical rock angled outwards from stage right, several large outcrops angles outwards from stage left and a seating area for up to 9,450 people in between.

It opened in the 1900’s, and has been known as “Garden of  the Angels” and “Garden of the Titans.” Today, everyone knows it as Red Rocks. If you’re planning a trip to Denver, CO this summer, check out the lineup!

It’s another Throwback Thursday photo challenge here on the Ask Instagram. The question today was, “Can you guess who this swingin’ sixties band we’ve been dreamin’ about is?”

Hopefully you picked up on the California Dreamin’ referenced, and guessed The Mamas and The Papas.

The group was together from 1965-168, and briefly reunited in 1971. They released five studio albums, and seventeen singles, six of which made it to the top ten charts. Worldwide, the sold close to 40 million records! Did you know that they were originally called the Magic Circle?
