Living in Colorado!
This morning I had the chance to go hiking in the Indian Peaks Wilderness area which is located west of Nederland about 1 hour from Boulder. I have been working a lot lately and jumped at he chance to spend a morning soaking in the beauty I see from a distance on a daily basis.
The morning was calm and beautiful. The water was rushing, the wildflowers were blooming and I was up early enough to miss the crowds. My destination for the morning was Arapahoe Pass, a vista point which allows backcountry access. Much of the three mile hike is above treeline and is very scenic because of all of the water and snow fields. Getting above treeline seems to clear my head and makes the hustle and bustle of town seem far away.
Boulder definitely gives the opportunity for a great lifestyle and having a resource like the Indian Peaks Wilderness area less than 40 miles away is a great perk. The best part was that I was back returning calls by noon. Here are a few of the photos from the hike. I hope you enjoy them!
