Boulder, Colorado

Boulder is my new favorite place! The City passed a law years ago prohibiting tall buildings. The result is that no matter where you are, you have a view of the mountains. The scenery here is just awesome. The people are amzingly friendly and they truly care about their surroundings. There is very little litter and as a result no matter where you are your will be surrounded by pure nature.
The people here are also amazingly fit. I thought Floridians were fit, but this place is full of runners, bikers, hikers, and walkers.
Boulder is a college town and as a result has a very funky vibe to it.
I think I'll move here.


Wow! The change in altitude packed a punch! I am pretty fit as far as cardio, but just a few minutes into my first hike I was wheezing like a rabid ferret. The views were worth it and I ended up hiking every day that I was here.

Mountains everywhere.

Scenes like this had me never wanting to leave. Imagine living here and having this view all year round?!
What a great place!

    Taos .. have to fly and drive unless u take a small plane. So that means into DEN or ABQ. Either way, give me some notice, and if I can get the time off work I will drive my happy ass up there to hug on your neck!

    Nice Boulder pages. Looks a little different from the 70's when I was there. Loved the altitude - always won our home meets in x-country!
