Within about 35 minutes of the University of Denver Sturm College of Law you can be enjoying scenes just like these.
Several days ago we had a heavy snowstorm one day. The next day the sky was brilliantly blue and and the ground covered with a fresh layer of snow -- 12 inches in some places, more than two feet in others. It is difficult to capture in words how magical the mountains are after just such a snow so I'll let these pictures do the talking.
All of these were taken at Elk Meadow, a beautiful piece of mountainous land that includes city of Denver, Jefferson County, and federal lands that are all adjacent to each other.
A walk in nature on a day such as this one clears one's head and makes us remember why the Rocky Mountain West is such a great place to live, study, and build a career. I know of not one person who has lived here who has been disappointed.
Come out to Colorado and see for yourself. This is one of the nation's -- if not the world's -- most scenic spots.
