Back from Boulder

Well, we're back from Boulder, and had a fantastic trip! I can see why people love it there so much - we had perfect, 85-degree, sunny weather every day, and cool 65ish (great for sleeping) nights.

Some of the highlights:

  • Stopping for elk and buffalo jerky on our way up to the mountains (yum!): Jerky
  • Spending 5 days at a gigantic cabin in beautiful Estes Park, gateway to the Rocky Mountains.Estes
  • Doing all sorts of outdoor activities like hiking, climbing (yes, me), and zip-lining (no, not me) Climbing
  • Seeing all sorts of wildlife, like badgers, marmots and elk (oh my!) and hearing the crazy coyote calls at night Marmot
  • Attending my first Rodeo - complete with Wranglers, Coors, Dodge pickups, and these showgirls:

  • Not to mention this bucking bronco:

  • Returning to Boulder for breakfast at Chautauqua - a park & recreation area originally created in 1898 to bring culture to rural areas - and photos of the Flatirons

    Flatiron

  • A visit to the Dushanbe Tea House, a gift to Boulder from its sister city of Dushanbe, the captial of Tajikistan. The house was hand crafted and built by over 40 artisans in Tajikistan and then taken apart and shipped to Boulder where it now stands. My pictures don't do it justice, but it's really quite beautiful, with hand carved and painted ceiling, walls, columns, and ceramic panels representative of the Persian Empire. Teahouse

...and much more!

Here's the full photo set:
