Boulder, Colorado in the 1800s - Very few trees

A lot of people don’t believe it when they come to the Boulder, Colorado area, but there were very few, if any, trees in Boulder and other towns like Louisville naturally. As you can see in this image from the 1800s, there are a few trees on the left side of the image, which is west, and closer to the mountains. Louisville, Colorado is east of here.

This image comes from the City of Boulder Facebook page.

Drive back from Golden, Colorado (and Lady Cab Driver)

While driving back from Golden, Colorado on November 10, 2016, I happened to be listening to Lady Cab Driver by the artist formerly known as Prince, and wondered if these days he would have called it Lady Uber Driver. I thought it was interesting how society in the present moment has an effect on music and writing.

And here’s a gratuitous photo of some cattle on the right and wrong side of the fence near Golden, a big field, and some mountains.

The Rocky Mountains, west and south of Boulder, Colorado

This is a view of the Rocky Mountains that are west and south of Boulder, Colorado. The apartment I lived in was located in the south/west area of Broomfield. There was actually a sign on the street in front of the apartments that said, “Welcome to Superior,” but somehow my apartment was in Broomfield.
