<![CDATA[Boulder - Weekly - Adventure]]> <![CDATA[Living the dream]]> For photographers, as for anglers, there’s always that one that got away. Rock climbing guide turned professional photographer and filmmaker Celin Serbo remembers such a shot vividly. It took place years ago on a guiding expedition to Ecuador. He was belaying clients up a headwall on the Cayambe volcano. It was early morning and the sun was just beginning to rise.]]> <![CDATA[Collapsible dog bowl is great for going hiking with Fido]]> <![CDATA[Power up your workouts]]> <![CDATA[Local support]]> 'Women who have been generously blessed by the Chest Fairy often complain about the physical discomforts that can accompany big bust size, such as back and neck pain,' says Rachel Palmer, founder of.]]> <![CDATA[The lost roots of Colorado skiing]]> Remember when Chautauqua was a ski area? No?]]> <![CDATA[Outdoor Tech Evolution]]> Film photography seems so quaint in this age of rapidly evolving technology, though the nostalgic charm is somewhat diminished as I flip through photo after photo. There we are, my friends and I, with eyes closed on the summits of mountains or with big fat thumbs obscuring an otherwise stunning sunset.]]> <![CDATA[Tom Danielson grabs win in USA Pro Challenge stage 3]]> Tom Danielson declared Tuesday night that he was glad to have the climb to Mt. Crested Butte behind him and to “move on to the parts of the race I like the most.”]]> <![CDATA[Navigating Nepal]]> 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.]]> <![CDATA[Steep, deep and cheap at Berthoud Pass]]> One of the great mysteries of Colorado skiing is how a ski area that racked up more snow than anywhere else in the state, was an hour and 15 minutes from downtown Denver and which had some of the steepest terrain in the country managed to go out of business.]]> <![CDATA[A mountain of preventive medicine]]> Nothing compares to the experience of being in the mountains at altitude, taking in the views, breathing crisp, clean air, hearing the first bubble of a stream at its nascent spring and seeing the tundra climate shrink our world down to miniature — tiny flowers, tiny shrubs, tiny pikas running among them. It’s priceless.]]> <![CDATA[BIFF 2013: Find, save, copy, paste]]> Imagine a trove of knowledge as vast and extensive as the famous Library of Alexandria, heralded for its archives of literature from antiquity and destroyed in the first centuries of the Common Era — burned, in the best of the legends about its destruction, in a fire that took six months to work through the documents that contained what was then the best and most comprehensive collection of the world’s knowledge.]]> <![CDATA[From globetrotting to Boulder Startup Week, Andrew Hyde loves an unusual adventure]]> 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.)]]> <![CDATA[Exploring Greenland's Artic trails]]> 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.]]> <![CDATA[Gay rodeo corrals an all-inclusive crowd]]> Johnson, 25, of Denver, only jumped into the rodeo world in 2012 when he started going to Charlie’s Denver, a gay country bar. Now, a mere three years later, he wears two crowns: the first, Mr. Colorado Gay Rodeo (from the Colorado Gay Rodeo Association, CGRA), which he claimed in 2014, and Mr.]]> <![CDATA[Drone season]]> For sporting types like ourselves, the alluring call of the wild drone was not something we could resist. It was mid-morning when we headed out for Deer Trail, a tiny burg that sprouts from the empty plains with an optimistic population estimate of 598.]]> <![CDATA[Wanderer of the wild]]> Floating downstream on the Colorado River between the red limestone walls of Marble Canyon on a makeshift raft, John Mattson spots a big drop. The rushing waves of Badger Creek Rapid are ahead. He and his friends scout the rapid for a clean entry.]]> <![CDATA[Wet for 50:]]> The river starts as nothing, just a trickle of snowmelt in the high Rockies, the wet drops of a winter’s precipitation falling off of lichen-covered rocks, streaking cliffs in dark zebra stripes of moisture. But it grows bigger quickly. The tributaries, both large and small, feed the monster, until the drops all flow together under the same name: The Colorado.]]> <![CDATA[It’s not about the shoes]]> Running. The elemental act of putting one foot in front of the other: rhythmic, effortless motion when it’s done right, grueling and difficult at times and — though this fact is lost to history — probably the first sport that humans ever competed against each other in.]]> <![CDATA[Perseverance earns Boulder teen Guinness World record]]> Just a few weeks ago, in front of friends, family and two video cameras used to record the evidence necessary for the Guinness World Records to confirm her feat, Ury planked her way into the world-renowned record book.]]> <![CDATA[Exploring Colorado's backcountry huts]]> Europe's first backcountry huts were ugly, practical things, hastily made by shepherds who sought shelter from harsh mountain storms. With the onset of winter, the flocks would be brought to lower elevations and the mountain shelters would be all but forgotten for the season.]]>
