On Christmas in 2014 once I headed out to Golden just after the snow started falling the afternoon. Being at some friends not far from Golden I was almost there already so it seemed to be a good decision. The drive out to Golden was quite interesting as the snow was coming down fast at times with the wind blowing. Upon arriving in Golden I was treated to a fresh blanket of snow and plenty of holiday lights. As I was exploring some lights in the distance on a tree I found the bridge and later this vantage point along Clear Creek which was a great spot to capture a snowy Christmas in the Denver area.
