Piqué asked for his face not to be photographed. Instead he’d rather that I take a picture of his Tonsure, the patch of hair on the back of his head that resembles a sort of Buddhist mullet. The Tonsure, Piqué says, is an identification for others that he is a person of peace and guidance; someone who is willing to help you if you ask. Piqué was walking down Grandview Avenue holding a drum and asking people if they would like to hear a song, maybe dance a little. I asked Piqué and his group of two other monks to come inside and teach me the song. We ended up signing Hari krishna and dancing... Read More

There are some people in this world that would go so far as to call Boulder a “liberal” town. Well to those people I say, why is there a Christian Science bookstore on the most expensive retail street in Colorado? I ventured inside this store yesterday afternoon to see if I could answer that very question. The first thing you need to know about this Christian Science bookstore is that it is hardly a bookstore at all. In fact it only sells two books; Science and Health, published by Mary Baker Eddy in 1875, and you guessed it, the Bible. Science and Health is the founding book on Christian... Read More

 Meet Dan and Elliot. These guys are fly fishers. They’ve been doing this for years now, and on a warm Sunday at 4pm they decided to come to Boulder Creek to fish for trout. You are not allowed to keep the trout that you catch in the creek, so they just get a hook and toss it back in. But don’t be fooled, just because these guys are fishing in Boulder Creek doesn’t make them new to the sport. Dan recently trekked all the way to Montana to fly fish with his dad, battling massive fish in raging rapids with just his rod and his hands. They like the atmosphere of the creek in Boulder,... Read More

Meet Dylan. He’s been skating in Boulder Skate Park since he was little. He knows every stall, crack and transition like the back of his hand. “I don’t come out here as much as I used too, but we try and get out here when we can. Maybe hit up Arvada once in a while.” Dylan, is just one of the few people here actually on a skateboard. There are bikers and young kids on scooters and even some guy just wearing wheels on his shoes, like a homemade version of Heelies. The atmosphere around here is welcoming, no one is judging you for your inability to land a tre-flip, or understand... Read More
