I had only seen these two buildings in pictures but I thought the simplicity of them and the height was so awesome. Being a kid from New Mexico, I figured I'd never see them. When I stood at the base of them, I couldn't believe it. The height and scale of them was unbelievable. As we drove out of the city, there they were, standing like a fourteen thousand foot peak in the middle of a small mountain range. I couldn't stop staring. I would see them a few more times before that day they disappeared and it was always the same feeling of amazement and wonder. I have not been back since, but if I did, I can only imagine what it would look and feel like. It would be as if Pikes Peak was gone, if Mt. Rainier was gone or the part of the Front Range disappeared. One day, I will go back, but it will never be the same as I remember.
