  • What a nice back drop for Boulder. Hikes are nice here. It made a wonderfull location for a sunrise wedding. The photos with the soft morning light were amazing  more »
  • At Chautauqua Park, parking is a tad limited & when there on a Sunday pretty crowded, but lots of room, even in the rain. Plenty of room to speed out & picnic. Decent trails to hike & gorgeous view  more »
