Front Range Pix

Here are photos of Red Rocks Open Space Park...

In the photo above, you can see Green Mountain, which is really just a hill, on the other side of Dakota Ridge. Green looks tame from a distance, but the trails can be very rugged.

North and South Table Mountains are created by a cap of ancient lava. The main castle rock is on South Table Mountian overlooking Golden. The main Coors Brewing facility is between the two mesas. (They certainly are mesas, but no one ever calls them that.)

The National Renewable Energy Labs is at the base of the hill above.

White Ranch Open Space Park is north of Golden, and affords good vistas of the metro-area...

Further north is the Mesa Trailhead. This is the southern trailhead to access the Boulder Flatirons.
