Driving around Boulder has to be one of the most eventful experiences I’ve had in awhile. One moment you’re driving in normal traffic, full of stop lights and pedestrians. However, one simple turn off of of a main road will have you suddenly on a long, winding road, abruptly heading thousands of feet into the sky.
Boulder attracts tourists and vacationers from all over the world. It was so amazing to see the amount of people who were out and about, enjoying the sublime views. Everyone from athletes and photographers to painters and yogis can find a sense of purpose in the mountains.
Speaking of athletes, I was so impressed by the amount of people, of all ages, that I saw taking advantage of Boulders scenery through biking and jogging. At these altitudes, oxygen can feel scarce at times. It takes a certain amount of discipline, grit, and the embrace of discomfort to get out and about.
There’s truly not much more inspiring and motivating than seeing an elderly couple out jogging at 3,000+ ft with ease.
If you’re a practitioner of yoga or meditation, Boulder offers such an amazing sense of detachment from the rest of the community. There’s something so calming looking out over a community from thousands of feet in the air. It’s the perfect blend of inclusion and detachment.
While I draw most of my energy and peace from the ocean as a result of my upbringing, Boulder provided an opportunity for me to experience nature on the other end of the spectrum, and it was just as stunning and visually stimulating!
Where do you go for peace and meditation?
