Year round one of my favorite hikes in Denver is the Mathew Winters trail that is next to Red Rocks Amphitheater.  The reason why I love this hike is that year round and on any day of the week, you can join fellow hikers, bikers and runners in enjoying the open spaces of Denver, with beautiful views back on the city and of Red Rocks.  This painting is from an early summer hike when various wildflowers were in bloom, sprinkled along the trail and up the mountainside.  I always felt so lucky to catch a glimpse of these flowers, before they wilted with the hot summer days to come.
