My hometown of Boulder, Colorado, is a very special place. I’ve lived here for 26 years, and have traveled all over the world, yet each time I come home, I’m happy to be here. Now I’m lucky enough to be able to combine my love for my town with one of my other passions: writing.
I’ve just started a regular gig, contributing to RootsRated, an awesome online site that focuses on the outdoor life. I’ll be writing an article a week, highlighting outdoor happenings and fun things to do in Boulder, Denver, and a bit beyond. Already my head is overflowing with ideas. I can’t wait to share them all with you.
For my first installment, I wrote a piece about hiking to the Boulder Star. This iconic symbol lights up the side of Flagstaff Mountain each holiday season, and is a beacon of good cheer for miles around. There’s no better way to celebrate the season than to hike up at dusk, watch the star ignite, sip a hot toddy, then descend with a headlamp to guide you.
I hope you’ll read my article and then take a hike!
