Although many routes may have changed due to the damage from the flood, photographers have found their way to the popular spots in this beautiful region.  Surrounded by the Rocky Mountain foothills, filled with scenic dirt roads and walked by the local critters (bears, elk, and even turkeys) there is never a shortage of amazing photo opportunities here beside the canyon walls.

Residents love this area for the epic views and small town feel tucked within the mountains. They have even

World-renowned architect, author, and keynote speaker Sarah Susanka is known for her unique architectural designs and her vision for living life in the present. As she worked closely with many clients, listening to what they were looking for and noticing what they found truly appealing in a home, she developed an idea for an architectural design concept, which she has dubbed the “Not So Big” home theory. 

The idea behind this concept focuses on making life simpler and more efficient for homeowners who see quality of life and craftsmanship as more significant standards than square footage.

Finally, we’re out of the deep freeze. That’s what it felt like around the Boulder Valley as January gave way to February. Unfortunately, Punxsutawney Phil, the Seer of Sears, the Prognosticator of Prognostications, predicted six more weeks of winter when he saw his shadow on February 2nd.
