DENVER (CBS4) – A woman enjoyed the first sunrise of the summer with a cold one.

81-year-old Anne Meeker is part of the development committee for the Bluff Lake Nature Center in Stapleton.

The center hosted a solstice sunrise where people got to see the sunrise off a Stonehenge replica.

Holding a beer, Meeker told CBS4’s Tori Mason “I’m glad I’m still alive cause I’m 81-years-old. My daughter never thought I would be here and make it and I said yes I would and I decided this is the first in my life and I have a beer and it’s a Fat Tire I love it. The sunrise was beautiful. I love Bluff Lake Nature Center.”
