An Hour (or Two) in Boulder

Boulder was the first stop in my Great Western Road Trip. I was curious more than anything and didn’t really expect to like the place so much. There was still plenty of tye-dye to be seen, but the Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall was less “hippie” than I’d expected.

BoulderFlatironsB&WI really hadn’t planned to stay long since I had to drive all the way to Estes Park and I’d already gotten up so early to fly to Colorado. I planned to head straight to Foolish Craig’s for lunch, but got sidetracked by The Boulder Bookstore (I can’t resist a good bookstore) and a gorgeous haberdashery. I picked up two books about women adventurers at The Boulder Bookstore including, How to Climb Mont Blanc in a Skirt: A Handbook for the Lady AdventurerI started reading it this weekend and it is absolutely fascinating. By the time I walked to Foolish Craig’s I was famished since my stomach was still on eastern time.

I wound up spending a couple of hours wandering Pearl Street, poking in shops like Violette and wishing I could justify buying a new dress there. There were so many and they were beautiful. I settled for a scarf and continued on. Cured was the last stop and where I picked up some cheese and meat to eat later that night. If you’re into fancy cheeses Cured is the place to go.

The following day I stopped in Boulder again and ate at The Sink. It certainly has an interesting atmosphere and good burgers.
