In Denver, our first stop is a candy factory. After putting on fancy hair nets, we watch how the hot semi-liquid sugar mass is molded into huge chunks, which are then stretched into long thin strings. While the strings are still warm and flexible, they are rolled into candy that solidifies as it cools down. Most of this is done by hand, which is amazing because of the temperature of the hot sugar mass.
Next, we visit the Coors beer brewery. On a guided tour, we see various steps of the fermentation process, which seems to be managed mostly automatically.
Finally, we go sightseeing in Denver, with the capitol building being on of the most interesting sights. From the top of the dome, we have a great view over the city center.
After this last sight, we drive back to Montana, where the next semester is beginning soon.
