Snowy Chautauqua

On the same photoshoot as Boulder in Winter, we visited Chautauqua Park in the foothills. On sunny days, Boulderites and tourists can be found hiking the many beautiful trails, but with all the snow, there were people snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and sledding (on cafeteria trays) instead.

Chautauqua is a beautiful place to hang out, with a large grassy park on one side of the parking lot and trails into the mountains on the other. Hiking isn't too difficult, and the views are fantastic the whole way.

When we went, the snow was as deep as our knees, and we only spent a little under an hour there because of the heavy snow and how cold and wet we were getting.
