Update: Congrats to Matthew Fuerst, the winner of last week's challenge. Matthew, check your e-mail for your prize instructions. For everyone else, here is this week's Guess Where I'm Biking challenge.
According to history buffs, this public park was purchased by the City of Denver from the federal government in 1872 for a mere $200. What originally started out as a cemetery for the upper crust residents of a city that General William Larimer had founded just fourteen years before (after stealing the land from the Arapaho people) eventually turned into grazing land for cattle, and a burial ground of the town's criminals.
It is commonly thought that the first person to be buried here was a man by the name of Abraham Kay, whose fatality came in the form of a lung infection -- although legend also has it that a disgruntled Hungarian shot his brother over a gold dispute, and dumped the body on the outer edge of the property.
