More Adventure Without a Car

Here are a few more local adventures I’ve come up with that don’t require a vehicle. The first is climbing in Eldorado Canyon, which happens to be one of America’s premiere rock climbing destinations and is only a relatively flat 6 miles away from my front door. An obviously bikeable trip, but finding a climbing partner with the same opinion was not easy.

And now that we live in a place with a real winter, I’ve had to broaden my pursuits to activities that take advantage of the snow. Like skiing! I skied off-and-on while living in Davis, but now that we are in Boulder I decided to actually buy a pair of skis. Thanks to the awesome Boulder Sports Recycler, I got a light pair of telemark skis for $55. The boots, well they were a bit more expensive, but with $100 of gift credit at REI, it only took another $200 to get a new pair of Scarpa T4s. With the convenience of the Boulder-Eldora bus, I was able to get out and ski up Jenny Creek to the Arestua Hut without ever getting the car out of the garage.

Love the blog, but I hope you’ll be able to add an aqua colored bar at the top called “Sailing.” Hope you can join us soon for a not-local adventure.
