Autumn beauty is in every direction


Recent photos from Littleton’s Andy Marquez remind us of how beautiful it is every direction we look outside. Enjoy a walk in Sterne Park or along the South Platte Riverside, where the trail reaches into Douglas County and meets the C470 trail. Or head east to Goodson Recreation Center and the trail that picks up there — or head west to Deer Creek Canyon Trail. Pack a lunch and picnic, or just saunter in the sunshine amidst the gold that surrounds. The high-country aspens have been great, but we’ve only got to step outside right here to enjoy now.
