I was recently on a business trip to Boulder, Colorado. I have three suppliers that I visit every couple of years. One of them was my former employer so I know Boulder fairly well. Colorado is my happy place. During the off business hours, I had a great time visiting some old places to see what changed or stayed the same.
This the view from South Boulder Creek at Cherryvale looking towards Long Peak.
Looking in the opposite direction is where the planes meet the foothills. That’s what Boulder is all about. The mountains are on the west side, the planes are on to the east. You can’t get lost.
On the west side of Boulder are the foothills. A drive up to Flagstaff Mountain will give you breathtaking views. There is a pullout about 2000 feet above town.
When you get up there in the late afternoon after the sun has warmed up the ponderosa pines, you can smell the sweet scent of vanilla from the tree bark.
