TRAVEL: Boulder, Colorado’s Rocky Mountain High for photography

Downtown Boulder, photographed by Jefferson Graham for the PhotowalksTV series.


Huge mountains, a creek that runs through town, a funky downtown with cool shops and cafes and historic buildings that date back to the 1800s, and for nostalgia buffs, an easy walk to the home shared by “Mork and Mindy” in the opening credits of the 1970s/80s TV series.

There’s lots to photograph in Boulder, as I discovered when I left the bubble in July and spent a few days in the college town, a 45 minute drive west from Denver.

Denver is the 19th largest U.S. city with a metro population of over 3 million while Boulder is a small town (pop. 100,000) with big city values–lots of arts and things to do, in a college town home to the University of Colorado. But the main attraction are those huge Flatiron Mountains, which can be seen anywhere in town. It’s the quintessential Rocky Mountain High.
