Retail shops opened in Boulder, Colorado on May 9th. With tulips and curiosity at its peak, I went to Pearl Street to take photos and to see if anyone shopped.

Here are my faves for almost Wordless Wednesday. Beyond Bowl enticed me. See the untracked snow beyond? Could I to stay high enough to make fresh tracks? I could... Continue Reading →
