First night in town, we walked up the creek to the downtown area for some dinner. There were mushrooms! Something severely lacking in out Badlands adventure. I could not live somewhere without fungi.
And yarn-bombing! An entire tree! It wasn't completely secured on the tree, but enough to make me smile when I saw it on the path.
And then dinner at the Boulder Cafe- oysters followed up by shrimp enchilladas and trout with jalapeno corn cakes. Yes, lots of seafood. That seemed to be the theme of the trip- long days on the road with very few healthy pescaterian roadside options followed up by delicious, decadent fish and vegetarian dishes.
Then, one of my friends who used to live in Boulder came and met up with us for a little help navigating the bar scene in town. It was so fun, and despite the time that has passed since we last saw each other, it was like we still eat lunch together in the student union every Tuesday.
The next morning we went discing with a view of the mountains.
Then we hiked in the mountains for a bit.
More about the next leg of trip very soon!
