Mines Dinner at Sherpa House
Golden, Colorado: April 23, 2015

Mike and I attended the MME spring dinner to honor the graduating seniors from the Colorado School of Mines' Metallurgical and Materials Engineering department.
Some of them are his students this semester!

The dinner was held on the Sherpa House's patio - it was a little chilly but, overall, a lovely night to be out.

The patio has a lovely view of South Table Mountain, which is more in focus in real life than I have it here.

I was still enchanted by the cool noise the fountain made as the water filtered through the fine gravel. Of course, it's hard to
capture it on video with the party going on:

Dinner time - the Sherpa House provided a nice buffet with a lot of our favorites.

Time for trivia on students and faculty ("Which graduating senior...", "Which professor or faculty member..."), followed by senior awards.

The crowd wanted this professor to drop the mic, but he wouldn't do it.

Party's over! Just a few more pictures on the way out...

Mike slowed down so I could get a blurry picture of the sign. I'm happy with it. :>)
