Boulder, Colorado: Climbing Photos and Brief Thoughts

I’m currently writing the story for the Small Newspaper Group about my rock climbing trip with the Colorado Mountain School in Boulder – so I’ll save most of my commentary until I see what’s what – but I did want to share some photos.

I must say, looking through these it really hit me – the beauty of Boulder, the grandeur of the entire experience. It’s one thing to climb in a gym or in some unknown mountain range, it’s another to tackle the entrance to the Rockies. Boulder is considered one of the top places in the world to climb, and I can certainly see why – the arena is what will ensure I never forget the trek.

Hopefully, these photos give you an idea of what I’m babbling about. You can check out a few others on Wake and Wander’s Facebook page.
