The View From Our Window: Elk Meadow Park, Colorado

While these photos are not literally from our windows at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, they were taken at Elk Meadow Park, which is only a short distance (25 miles, 40 kilometers) from the law building. I took them yesterday afternoon just as the sun was beginning to go down after a mostly (but not entirely) cloudy and drizzly autumn afternoon.

For those of you who have not visited Colorado in the autumn, these pictures depict the golden leaves of Quaking Aspen trees. There's really no bad time to visit Elk Meadow Park, which is part of the Jefferson County open space, but it is difficult to beat the warm days and cool afternoons and evenings.

Experiences, such as my hike in Elk Meadow Park, remind all of us why living and studying in Colorado is such a great experience.
