Mother Cabrini Shrine is a very special place to Dena as her family visits often and her father’s name is displayed there. The Mother Cabrini Shrine is a unique and peaceful place where people can meditate and pray. You’ll also get some exercise as you have to climb 373 steps to get to the shrine.

Favorite Hike: Mount Sanitas 
Boulder, CO 

Mount Sanitas is a 3-mile hike that features beautiful views and offers views of both Denver and the mountains from the top! The hike is a steady incline all the way up so be prepared for a workout. You might also want to bring sunscreen as there is not much shade on this hike.
