Oct 5, 2017 - Grounded

Boulder, CO One of the highlights of this tour is a hot air balloon ride and we were excited about it. We set our alarm and went to bed early as we were to be picked up at 6:45 am. Unfortunately, we received a phone call at 5:41 am telling us that the flight had been cancelled because of weather (fog). We were very disappointed and our tour guide was again scrambling for alternative activities between breakfast and lunch. Most of the group scattered to nearby Pearl St Mall and other environs but 8 of us headed up to the Colorado Chautauqua...

Oct 4, 2017 - Rocky Mountain National Park

Boulder, CO Although the road we had intended to take today was closed because of snow, Jim found a work-around for our driver and tour guide. The alternate route is actually amazingly beautiful when the aspen are in their glory. Unfortunately we are past the season already. Although it was a longer, snakier route, we made it into Estes Park and then into Rocky Mountain National Park only about an hour behind our original schedule. Because of the road closures, we saw very little of the park but spotted plenty of elk and a scattering of...

Sep 12, 2017 - Boulder, Colorado

We spent Tuesday and Wednesday in Boulder, Colorado getting getting sorted for the big trip up into the Rocky Mountains. To get here we had to cross the Independance Pass at an elevation of over 12,000', which was stunning, driving through the mountains with the Colorado river running by our sides. We were very steady in Boulder, highlights being Joe getting his hair cut and doing some food shopping in Safeway, getting ready for camping in the Rockies. We also went to a farmers market; people from Boulder are very big on the origin of...

Aug 16, 2017 - Boulder

WEDNESDAY, AUG 16 – TURSDAY, AUGUST 17 After a quiet night in Evergreen we drove to the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum and grave. We visited the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody in 2014. This was a much smaller version with high quality displays. We drove into Denver to tour the Denver Mint. Arriving we found all tickets for the day had been claimed by 7:30 AM! Looking around the area we did the next best thing, walking two blocks to the Colorado Statehouse and joined a tour. All materials used to build the Statehouse are native to...

Jul 4, 2015 - Fireworks!

Saturday July 4, 2015 Today is our last day in Boulder. We spent much of the day in town just taking advantage of the Fourth of July activities. The farmer’s market supplied fresh peaches, goat meat, and beets. We met the goat meat vendor at our campground yesterday, so we didn’t even need to worry about how to keep it cold for the day. We just bought it, and picked it up when we got back to the campground. Mary-Jeanine spent some time browsing the Pearl Street Mall and I went on a bicycle ride up Boulder Canyon. We had lunch on the grass...

Jul 3, 2015 - Tubing

Friday July 3, 2015 Today we are tubing on Boulder Creek. We find out when we are getting our tubes that this is the first day they are renting tubes this season. And, the water is high, so they don’t recommend tubing the whole creek. Well, we are here for adventure. So, we gather our tubes, helmets, and personal flotation devices and head up to the library. The library straddles the creek, and has ample parking for our adventure. We started out small for our first run. Just a few hundred feet. The water is cold and fast, but fun. We keep...

Jul 2, 2015 - Boulder

Thursday July 2, 2015 Today was a glorious day in Boulder. We slept in, paid up for tonight in our campground, and packed up our bicycles for a day in da city. We parked in the Trader Joe’s parking lot. Yes, there is a Trader Joe’s with a parking lot big enough for an extra vehicle! Popped off the bicycles and rode all over the place in Boulder. Mostly we biked along Boulder Creek. The city of Boulder is hugely supportive of the cycling and pedestrian community. Drivers here are definitely second class citizens in the downtown area. And, it...

Jul 1, 2015 - Down Day

Wednesday June 26, 2015 Down Day. We moved Yertle to the Boulder County Fairgrounds campground. It is a dusty affair with a… shall we say more eclectic population than we are used to. We dropped off the camper and went back to Celestial Seasonings to see the factory when it is actually running. That, and for more tea. I say back because we came here on Sunday as well, but it was pretty quiet. The first and last impressions you have in the factory is smell. The smell of all the herbs, teas, and other ingredients is almost overwhelming. As...

Jun 19, 2015 - Day 24 June 16 2015 Vernal UT to Boulder WY

Day 24 June 16 2015 Naples UT to Boulder WY 63 degrees for a starting temp with floaty clouds is the way Leona calls them. We did have some thunder for awhile last night a short downpour for about 5 mins. OUCH! What started off to be a good morning ended up with me ramming a bare pointed root into my left foot. I thought it was just a small cut and chip of toe nail cut off, but soon saw a pool of blood in my sandals. Leona got the first aid kit out and helped me stop the bleeding, than she bandaged me up. It’s painful to walk on and still...

Oct 6, 2013 - Boulder, Colorado

Boulder has pedestrian downtown area called Pearl Street, a nice place to visit for a couple of hours to see the unique shops and have a bite to eat at one of the many inviting restaurants. Photos 1-12 We had a delicious meal of huge T-bone steaks with Idaho potatoes at a western style restaurant. All the walls were decorated with real western themes. Photos 13-19

Aug 15, 2013 - Cabela's

We didn't rush out of Englewood this morning because we were meeting the Wisers at a new Cabela's that was having a grand opening @ 11:00am. There were thousands of people there. Some camped out the night before. They were hoping to be one of the first 100 people in the door. Boulder has been wanting a Cabela's for years. There were police and volunteers regulating traffic everywhere. Parking was crazy. We, in the RV, were very lucky and got to park right up in front of the store with several other RVs. The Wisers parked at the mall across...

Aug 14, 2013 - Onward to Boulder

We were invited to lunch by Melissa Titus Clymer who lives in Boulder and works for Lockheed Martin. Before she moved back to CO (where she was raised and went to school), she worked with us in King of Prussia. Melissa took us into Boulder for a lovely lunch at The Kitchen Next Door with her two adorable girls and a friend, Hannah. After lunch, we went back to Melissa's house, hung out and waited for her husband, Mike, to come home from work. They invited us to stay for dinner and we brought in pizza. We had a great time catching up with...
