Parking lot on 120th Avenue, just east of McCaslin Boulevard and west of the Jeffco Airport.
There are lots of great sites in DM79 - I picked this one because it is near the DN70ja site and it's near my house - great views 360 degrees.
WW1M/R visited this site for the June, 2005 contest.

Magnetic Declination (Variation)
Magnetic Declination, sometimes called Variation (especially in the aircraft world), is the difference between True North and Magnetic North. It is expressed in the number of degrees difference between the two directions and on which side of True North you will find Magnetic North.
(Declination was calculated on the NOAA National Geophysical Data Center web page at http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomagmodels/Declination.jsp)
