Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

April 8th, 2020

I caught Jake at a good time. Not only a momentarily good time, but a good time in life. He says he’s really happy with where he is at right now. His biggest worries at the moment are finding a part time job and keeping up with his schoolwork. On his off days he enjoys playing guitar and taking on whatever challenge life throws his way. Jake hopes his future is filled with lots of travel and new cultural experiences. One day he hopes to relearn Spanish and live in Mexico for a couple of months. Then he hopes to fit New Zealand in sometime too. But for now, Jake said, “Boulder is doing me just... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Woody!

April 7th, 2020

Meet Woody! Woody visits the dog daycare I help out at every so often, and has quite the personality. Some of his favorite things include belly rubs, a good stick, and catching his own tail (which he is extremely good at I might add). Rumor has it, if you pet him behind the ear in just the right way, his tail can wag near the speed of light. Boulder is home to many incredible and interesting animals, and Woody is no exception.  Read More

April 6th, 2020

The grand red sign and huge white marquee of Boulder’s Fox Theatre give the building a sense of purpose and permanence. This strong identity boldly contrasts the complex and confusing history of the building itself.

April 2nd, 2020

Colorado Parks and Wildlife were called earlier today because of a report of a mountain lion sitting in a tree in a neighborhood backyard. Because the cat was not exhibiting any abnormal behavior or aggression officials decided to let it come down from the tree on its own and return to the wild — after its cat nap. Officials think it’s likely the animals was pursuing something such as a racoon or a skunk and ended up in human territory to take a nap and did not pose a threat to the community. It’s common to see mountain lions during early spring and late winter, even in human territory.... Read More

April 1st, 2020

Jose Jimenez, a professor of chemistry at the University of Colorado Boulder, says that people exercising outdoors, an activity that is allowed under Gov. Polis’ stay-at-home order, should be exercising much farther than the designated 6 feet apart. Jimenez said, “The best analogy is when someone is smoking tobacco or marijuana. Think about how many times you have walked by people and smelled tobacco or pot smoke that someone else had exhaled. Often, those people were farther away than six feet.” “If that happens, we are inhaling the contents of someone’s lungs with limited dilution.... Read More

New To Yoga? A 3-Step Beginner’s Guide For Starting Out

March 30th, 2020

  I remember the first time I unrolled a yoga mat. I was eighteen years old, shy, and slightly terrified. This feeling is not uncommon. In fact, it’s quite normal when tackling unfamiliar territory of any kind.
