Happy March! In like a lion, out like a lamb… or something like that.
I finally made it to Boulder to do an actual hike from Chautauqua park. We started at the Chautauqua trailhead and hiked up the paved path until we hit the junction between the 1st/2nd Flatiron trail and the Bluebell/Baird trail. Up to the flatirons we went. It was a beautiful day, chilly with enough sunshine to make it comfortable. The trail was slick with ice, but it was still hike-able. There were beautiful overlooks of the city of Boulder, Denver from afar, and the mountains. I’ve always heard it’s a pretty crowded hike on the weekends, but I highly recommend the hike, especially on a quiet week day.
