Boulder Bound: Cabin and Climbing Follow Biking and Bars

After spending the weekend near Breckenridge and the last few days in Denver (stories to come), I will move over to Boulder tomorrow and check into a cabin at Chautauqua Park.

Flatirons at Chautauqua Park, Boulder, Colorado.

I begin rock climbing lessons on Friday with the Colorado Mountain School – Eldorado Canyon on Friday, the Flatirons on Saturday – and the experience will be the focus of my story for the Small Newspaper Group in July.

Eldorado Canyon is supposed to be one of the most beautiful parks in the area (according to my local friends), and the flatirons are a symbol of Boulder.

I’ll have to save most of my rock climbing thoughts for the feature, but I will talk about it generally and post as many photos as I can of Chautauqua, Eldorado, and Boulder. Right now I’m working on the story of hiking my first fourteener, and tonight I will check out Denver Cruisers, a biking bar crawl to which I am supposed to wear my pajamas.
