peaks, shimmering lakes and high country blue skies.
remnants of early 19th century architecture harmonize with alluring
shops and restaurants. Playgrounds, in-town hiking paths and
a riverside park are appealing features. Nature prevails on
a picture-perfect golf course with a nest of eagles on the 14th
hole. Naturalists converge on Golden as a vantage point for
wildlife viewing and birdwatching. Anglers fish the local rivers
and lakes for trophies.
