Top of the World
This is a bit touristy, but it's such a beautiful spot, I would highly recommend it. You can either drive or hike to the top of Mt Evans, which is just a short distance west of Denver. Besides the gorgeous views from the top, it's a fantastic wildlife-viewing area, with a good chance of spotting mountain goats, big horn sheep, marmots, elk, and more. This particular photo was taken near the elevation marker at the summit. Our AmeriCorps NCCC team had been working at Summit Lake with Denver Mountain Parks and decided we needed to see what we were missing at the top!
