Exploring Greenland's Artic trails

Two Boulderites experience one of the world’s most remote treks

By Miriam Murcutt & Richard Starks

With just three days of food, we set off to test out the eastern tip of the Arctic Circle Trail, heading west in bright sunshine along a dirt road that parallels the Kangerlussuaq runway. We then turned north — magnetic north, which at this latitude is more than thirty degrees west of true north — to pass through the bustling metropolis of Kellyville. Kellyville has a stated population of seven, and while we were there (we stopped for a picnic lunch on a plank of wood that served as the town bench), the seven residents must have been out of town. Kellyville is a scientific community set up in 1983 to study the ionosphere and upper atmosphere using incoherent scatter radar.

From globetrotting to Boulder Startup Week, Andrew Hyde loves an unusual adventure

By Mary Reed

Andrew Hyde sold almost all of his belongings in 2010 and set out to travel the world with just 15 items. (As long as you’re not persnickety about whether the iPhone and its charger are two different items, he really did it with 15 or so items.)

Navigating Nepal

A trip to Nepal showed one filmmaker just how important tourism is to the country

By Caitlin Rockett

Luke Mislinski had been in Nepal for a month by the time he met two of his friends in Kathmandu. The three Americans were milling about the intricate temples and fountains of Durbar Square in the country’s capitol when a Nepali man approached the group, offering a tour of the historic site for around 200 Nepali rupees per person — less than $2 each.
