Scenes from Boulder

I hope you all had a good week last week! Our trip to Boulder, CO was pretty amazing. We spent our first two nights at Chautauqua (and had a surprisingly delicious dinner at their dining hall); then, we back-packed our way through the Rockies for four days (my first time camping for real); and our last two nights in Boulder were spent at the beautiful Hotel Boulderado. Some beer tasting, sightseeing, wildlife sightings (including deer, moose and elk), and mountain biking (much to my horror) was also involved. 

I took several hundred photos while we were away, so here are just some of the highlights from our epic trip.

The sights, from our hike:


More elk!

The food:

Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery - Avocado & Cheese Sandwich, $6.25.

Twirl frozen yogurt - they also have dairy-free options.

I also highly recommend The Boulder Omelet ($9.50) from Foolish Craig's, and the Veggie Burger ($8.50) at Walnut Brewery (washed down with one of their beers, obviously).

The beer:

Avery Brewing Co.'s Wheel Sucker Wheat Ale + their special tap for that day.

Mountain Sun's Jah'Mon Ginger.

Upslope Brown Ale - from Rueben's Burger Bistro.

Russian River brews from Backcountry Pizza & Tap House.

The accommodations:

Hotel Boulderado.
