Meet Francesca and Patipan! They moved to Colorado for a summer internship and came up to Boulder for a hike to the Royal Arch. Patipan is from Illinois and had only been here for three days when he conquered this hike. He said he could definetely feel the altitude but it was worth it.

Francesca is from the Bay Area in California, and while she might be missing the beach, she absolutely loves it here!

“Colorado is so different from the beaches and landscape of the Bay Area. California has some fun hikes, but nothing like this!!” – Francesca.

They have lots more exploring to do, and are excited to get to it!!
