I've been crazily busy with three days of work, some freelance work, an overabundance of social possibilities, and fitting in biking & hiking in between. That said, two weeks ago, I designated Monday as "Boulder Day" with one more trip to go. Boulder has always been on my "to visit" list, and it's just an hour down the mountain pass.
The biggest surprise is that Boulder isn't as funky as I expected. I'd say Burlington, VT and Flagstaff, AZ have more of an edge left than Boulder does, though all three places seem to have a similar personality. I really like Boulder and the people seem quite happy. The cycling is amazing, and there are friendly cyclists everywhere! Overall, a pretty good vibe but a little more grown up than I expected!
The photos are from 2 visits, and I can't wait to return this Monday.

I'll always remember Boulder for the most expensive diesel fuel that I've ever bought-$5.25/gal. Pretty place, though.

Gary ... quite some time ago? I believe it was $2.20 yesterday. Had another lovely day in Boulder & totally get that town! Will write you before I hit the road again this weekend! j.

Yes, it was about 2008, right before the economic crash. Very pretty city, though. Would have liked to have spent more time there. Amazing that fuel could be as cheap as in Austin now.
