    • Favorite hike or walk: Walden Ponds, near Gunbarrel, with binoculars for bird watching to check-off birds in my book
    • Most relaxing spot: Chautauqua Auditorium during Colorado Music Festival rehearsal — with a great book
    • Favorite place to take guests: After a walk through the Chautauqua historic neighborhood, walking/shopping on Pearl Street between 8th and 18th Streets, stopping at the split-rock installation on 1100 block. Feel the energy between the rocks?

    • Favorite Boulder hike or walk:  Mt. Sanitas has a special place in my heart because for many, many years while our kids were young, my friend group of eight twin moms pushed double strollers up this beautiful trail every Wednesday morning, rain or shine. 
    • Your Boulder beverage of choice: T|ACO has great margaritas without the sugary mixes and they carry a favorite Boulder-based brand, Suerte Tequila. Hits the spot!
    • Favorite weekend activity in Boulder: A picnic at Chautauqua, preferably when music is playing in the auditorium, throwing a frisbee, kicking a soccer ball, and enjoying each other.
    • Favorite view: Lost Gulch Overlook
    • Travel style: With an active family and busy lifestyle, a beach is always good for the soul! Rest and renewal.

    • Favorite place to take guests: The visitor center at NCAR. It’s a beautiful road, on a beautiful piece of land. I especially like how the tall grass blows in the wind, and we see deer there fairly often.
    • Best meal in Boulder: It’s a toss-up between the Eggs Jennifer at Lucile’s and the vegetable tasting platter at Salt.
    • Favorite view: Boulder Valley as you drive into Boulder from Denver. To see the mountains in the distance, all the wide, open space that surround our town, and the red roofs of CU – whew!
    • Travel style: Small-town discovery

    • Best meal you’ve had in Boulder: The Pain Perdu at Lucile’s. The atmosphere is so different and fun, and the food is seasoned to perfection.
