They walked up to the balcony overlook to celebrate not only the dome being open again, but something very special to them, their 23rd wedding anniversary. It's where J.P. proposed.

"It’s just one of the best parts of Colorado in my mind," he says.

Susan says the marriage proposal was memorable.

"It was a fun proposal from J.P. because he sent me on a little chase with clues from the library all over town." she says. "And the last clue was here, and he proposed to me on this spot."
