THE PHOENIX

A GIRL'S EYE VIEW OF ESTES PARK Did you ever have a perfectly impossible job assigned to you! Of course you have, and somehow you wangled out of it, or waded through it. Well, extend sympathies to a sister in distress. My assignment is to tell you of the Alpha Sigma Alpha what there is to see and do in and about Denver-in 500 路 words. With so,ooo, I might begin to give you a girl's eyeview of Colorado, but with only soo, let's just make it a preface. You're going to Estes Park for your convention! Well, I hope and pray that you'll be able to keep your mind on your work when you're in session, for Estes Park and all it contains in those encircling hills is better than a three-ring circus. If I were doing it, I would wear my riding clothes to meeting, and be ready between acts to dash out, mount a horse, and gallop oft on any one of the hundreds of gorgeous trails that lead on up into tree-clad canyons and snow-spattered mountain crests. There's Lily Mountain, Deer Trail Park, Wind River, Flat Top, Gem Lake, Twin Sisters, Black Canyon, Chasm Lake, et cetera, et cetera. And don't let that word "gallop" scare you in case you haven't been on a horse since you gave up your Shetland. These deep Western saddles have a good horn to hang onto if you're scared, and there's generally a handsome dude wrangler around to look after your interests. In case you're a golf qddict, bring along the clubs. It may be a bit difficult to keep your eye on the ball, with the "Snowy Range" in competition, but you'll have a chance to try it on the .18-hole course in Estes Park. And while we're on the subject of golf, Denver has some wonderful courses. Then, too, up at Evergreen in the Denver Mountain Parks there's a course that appeals to those who think as much of an esthetic background as they do of their score. When the gavel sounds for the last time and convention sessions are a thing of the past, what are you going to do then? It may be路 you'll want to stay right on at the Estes Park Chalet in Estes Park and do as many of those horseback and motor trails as you can. Maybe you'll want to climb Longs Peak; 14,255 feet high! And without a doubt you'll explore at least
