BOULDER, SUNSET







A demon profile for Halloween?










BOULDER: ST. JULIEN HOTEL & SPA





Room with a view





Jim Morrison of the Doors once said that comparisons are for people without imagination.

But after experiencing the old Colorado charm of the Boulderado we moved to the modern sophistication of St Julien to experience both.





BOULDER: DUSHANBE TEAHOUSE








A gift, built by hand, from Boulder's sister city, Dushanbe, in Tajikistan.









THE BOULDERADO





A Colorado classic.




BOULDER, CO






National Geographic just declared Boulder the happiest city in the United States.

Seems happy enough to me after almost two weeks on the road.

Chillin' here (literally) while awaiting the heatwave in Montecito to abate.

Estes Park, Colorado









A writer named Stephen King was here once.

He wrote a novel about it. 

The Shining.

Or, as the hotel valet said, "The mountains keep you in check."

DENVER WAKE-UP CALL







The ART, a Hotel has a fabulous bar and restaurant called Fire.

And they fired up an unbelievable river trout and scallops.


(Not one bad meal this whole x-country trip.)





A peek up Broadway


THE ART, A HOTEL














Smack in the middle of Denver's art district is a modern hotel that doubles as a museum.









HELLO DENVER !






A marathon trip that seems to have no ending.

(So far ten states, eight hotels.)

Or, as Robert Frost put it:  Miles to go before I sleep.



B-BYE BOSTON





Three nights in one place actually felt like a vacation.

But now it's time to motion.

Everything a guy could need, under one roof.

HARVARD: MEMORIAL HALL






A daytime orb.

Other than the sun itself, highly unusual.
