DARS 2018 will be held in the Aspen Rooms at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Boulder is a college town conveniently located 45 minutes drive from Denver International Airport (DEN). Boulder has gathered many top rankings for health, well-being, quality of life, education and art, including first places in the “Top 10 Happiest Cities”,  “Top Brainiest Cities”, “America’s Top 25 Towns to Live Well”, “America’s Foodiest Town”, and many more. Boulder offers ample opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, climbing. Boulder is home to Chautauqa Park, a national historic landmark, and Pearl Street Mall.

Boulder is located at 5,430 ft (1,655 m) over sea-level with the average temperatures in October between 37.8F-65.8F (3.2C-18.8C), with some days spanning the full range. We therefore recommend a layered approach to clothing (shirt, fleece, jacket) and robust shoes for participating at a group hike in Chautauqa.
