Last night I got news from grad school classmates that Boulder, CO, was mostly under water. Flash floods turned Boulder Creek into a much more dangerous river–and some streets ended up resembling that same creek. I’m fairly certain that the first apartment I rented in the town is now flooded; the second apartment might also be under water.
I decided to go through my old photos, from before I owned a digital camera, and remember the days in the mountains. I couldn’t seem to find my photos from hikes up Mt. Sanitas, overlooking Boulder, but I did find plenty from days in Rocky Mountain National Park. These are all from separate trips: my first time in the park with my parents when I first moved to Boulder, an early spring drive into the park, and a rugged hike up 13,500 ft for which I was not quite prepared.
For those readers living in the flooded areas of Colorado, I hope you stay safe. I miss the days of living in Boulder and hope to get back there.
