According to the City of Boulder, Colorado Government Facebook page, this photo from 1866 is one of the oldest known photos of Boulder, Colorado. As someone commented on that page, there are no trees shown in the area. I’m told that pretty much every tree you see in Boulder, Longmont, Louisville, Broomfield, etc., was planted by man.

This is the church for the children (el ninos) next to El Sanctuario de Chimayo, just north of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Seeing that we had another snow storm here in Colorado, I thought I'd share another photo of El Sanctuario de Chimayo in the winter. (El Sanctuario de Chimayo, near Santa Fe, New Mexico)
As I continue to work through photos, this is a photo of a painting of a church, which I believe I saw in the lobby of the La Fonda hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
It was an interesting afternoon to watch a Wikipedia entry. With the University of Colorado looking for a new head football coach, I saw this tweet saying that someone changed Steve Sarkisian’s Wikipedia entry early this afternoon (2/20/2020) to show that he was the new head coach at Colorado.
When I looked up the IP address at the bottom of that changelist — 188.8.131.52 — I saw that it was a University of Colorado IP address. But later in the afternoon it was reported that Sarkisian was staying as the offensive coordinator at Alabama and getting a raise, so his Wikipedia entry was reverted about 2.5 hours later.
This short video on Twitter shows the depth of the “front range” of the Rocky Mountains here around Denver and Boulder, Colorado. When you look at them from the ground you can’t get that depth perspective, so this is really a great view.
