From Denver we drove west to the town of Boulder, known for its rock climbing we made the most of it and did some climbing in the local Gym and getting free showers there was a bonus. We also got some advice about some outdoor climbing spots. So the next morning after being politely asked to leave the Walmart we were camping in we headed off up Boulder Canyon. It took us a while to find the spot but eventually we did. So we set up to climb a few routes and tied Scout up at the bottom with a stick to chew on. It was an enjoyable and challenging day but as soon as the sun went down the temperature dropped fast and it was time to go and find a camping spot close by. In the dark we drove down to a lakeside picnic spot and camped right next to the lake. We climbed again the next day and camped back at the same spot however the following morning a local police officer pointed out that we were actually parked on a walking track and told us to “move on” luckily we were ready to leave anyway and headed back to Boulder for a shower at the Recreation Centre. We stopped for breakfast on our way back in a nice sunny neighbourhood and as it turns out a Buck and Doe also thought it was good spot to enjoy the morning sun as they passed by right next to us.
