6 Fall Hikes Around Boulder to See Aspen

September 12th, 2023

I’d expect lots of warm days in Boulder to come, but in the mountains, it is really starting to feel like fall. Once the aspen trees start to turn its a narrow window of time to see the mountains shrouded in gold.  There’s several places a quick drive from Boulder to go check out the leaves. Many people simply drive around and then turn back. But not you! Use this list to do some serious leaf peeping around Boulder. Hessie Trailhead, Eldora, CO  This trailhead into the Indian Peaks Wilderness is super popular on weekends. It is an easy hike to wander around up to a waterfall on... Read More

5 Fall Wildflowers to Find Outdoors

September 5th, 2023

While it may be golden aspen up in the mountains, down here in the plains, in Boulder, we still have wildflowers in bloom. These flowers provide important food for bees and other animals as we get closer to winter. In our open space and natural areas these flowers are especially important. Its the very end of flower season so catch the last of the wildflowers until next year. As you walk around Boulder or one of the many great open spaces in the plains this weekend, look out for these lovelies. Goldenrod, Solidago canadensis This tall bright yellow cluster of flowers can be found all over Boulder.... Read More

Autumnal Coffee Pleasures

October 9th, 2022

In Boulder, foliage is changing along with people’s outfits and appetites. Fall alters eating habits and restaurant menus along with the colors and temperatures of the city. Hearty foods made from autumnal produce like butternut squash and sweet potatoes, along with sweet treats like pumpkin pie and hot apple cider, are the order of the season.     Coffee tastes also shift with the seasons. Many coffee drinkers begin to crave toasty or velvety seasonal-flavored beverages as Fall progresses in to Winter. Autumn is when the pumpkin spice latte is king, or at least that’s how many major... Read More

The changing of the season – exploring the equinox

September 22nd, 2022

Yesterday I spent my morning amongst the flora and fauna of mountain land, tending a beautiful garden of wildflowers and native plants, herbs and roses.  As I spend more time working with the earth and the plants, I begin to feel the cycle of the seasons come alive in me. If you know me, you know I can’t resist a good metaphor, and a change of season is ripe with meaning for our own journey.  So, inspired by the nature of the season, I have been pondering a few questions. We are approaching the autumnal equinox, one of only two times in the year when day and night are of equal length.... Read More

A Brief History of the Beer Boot

January 11th, 2022

Drinking beer is not the only thing I do, so the other day, I decided to go on a lovely jaunt through downtown Boulder. Where was I walking, do you ask? To the Bohemian Biergarten, of course! I was on a quest to discover the history behind the beloved beer boot, or Das Boot, as many of us fondly refer to it. I arrived at my destination, but to my disappointment, their Bavarian chef, Martin König, was away, and my question could not be answered. I actually think my curiosity may have sparked the same questioning surrounding Das Boot in others. Anyways, I am not the most patient person, so instead... Read More

Have you guys tried the Post Brewing Company’s location in Boulder? I have! And, it’s now one of my favorite hangouts in town. Hot Chicken Loves Cold Beer, what more is needed to entice you?! The poultry and pilsners are calling your name!

August, Die She Must

September 6th, 2016

She stole the very beauty from the earth. He would try to continue to find it, but on the long drive through the canyon that morning, one that he never felt compelled to rush and instead enjoyed reveling in the less-touched pieces of land beyond the city, he could only speed, passing each car and feeling disgusted by the perfect trails of clouds, trails he would often look at as threads of heaven spun over the earth, feeling today that they looked instead like claw marks made by the hand of his own ache, raked across the face of God. The bright plumage of the Aspen forests and the rivers normally... Read More

Why the End of Summer Isn’t a Bummer

August 17th, 2016

For anyone who has recently braved the terror that is Target during back to school, congratulations. You survived. Let’s be honest about back to school season. Once the novelty of your new backpack/agenda/room décor wears off, we are left with the reality that summer has ended. The nights that don’t require a down jacket are limited, and the first snowfall is a very close reality. If you’re anything like me, you will experience a vague feeling of loss and emptiness as you realize your first midterms are a mere month away. I know. I’m sorry to so rudely awaken you. Let me make it up to... Read More
