I just climbed up one of the trails in the FlatIrons in Boulder. Ok, so ‘climbed’ is a bit of a stretch. The trail we did wasn’t that strenuous. We went up to about 7000 feet up, but Boulder itself is at about 5000 feet, so it wasn’t that big of a deal. We went up to the Royal Arch, which was pretty cool, but way too many people are running up there with their dogs — dog country out here. I didn’t have my camera, but here are some pics of the FlatIrons that I found on Flickr – they were a lot less impressive than I was expecting.

afterwards we went to this really cool tea house – Pekoe Sip House – part of the resurgence in teas.
