My third book, If I Die Young, takes place in the Denver, Colorado area. The scenery there is beautiful. I wanted a beautiful place where Caelyn could experience the season changes, where she would feel alive. One of the most beautiful flowers is the Colorado state flower - the Columbine - mentioned a couple times in the book.
Caelyn mentions the mountains and views in the book. Here's a few pictures of Estes Park from this past winter:
This is the children's hospital in Denver where Caelyn spends a lot of time:
I hope to get to the Denver area this summer for more pictures.
