What Brought This Up?

I just flew from Grand Junction, Colorado to Tampa, Florida. Flights in both directions included layovers at Denver International Airport. Looking back over the years, I've been through DIA dozens of times, but in each case, they were all connections. To date, I don't recall flying directly from DIA. So, with that, I've never dealt with security at DIA, and have never experienced an adventure with parking.

Personal experiences with DIA, until yesterday, were always positive. Yesterday's connection from DIA to Grand Junction was a bit rough. Between a late arrival, augmented by a number of gate changes, it was only by the slightest of margins that I made my connection. When it was all said and done, though, no biggie. One crummy visit out of dozens of positives.
