I got the chance to return to Denver after to many years away and boy the changes. After a couple of days of work related meetings, I rented a car to check out a few of my old favorite places near Denver: Mt. Evans and Red Rocks Park. The drive up to Mt. Evans was loaded with anticipation over the autumn views and the weather, but, sadly, the road to the summit had closed just the week before and as far as I could go was Echo Lake, which isn’t bad and the weather was great. After hiking around the Echo Lake area, I headed to Red Rocks Park taking in the beautiful fall vistas along the way. It was afternoon sun but, I didn’t care, it was a great opportunity and I was going to make the most of it.
