I’m officially in Colorado and couldn’t be more excited. I flew in to Denver this past Monday. It was a little bittersweet to leave Vermont, but I’m excited for what my new home has to offer. Since landing, I’ve been hard at work setting up my apartment. Between DMV trips, Comcast headaches, and unpacking a moving box, I haven’t been able to get into full adventure mode just yet. I’ve ventured into Boulder for a couple rounds of disc golf, but that’s been about it. Despite staying close to home base I have to admit, after spending 29 years living in New England, almost everything is feeling like a new adventure. I’m amazed every time I drive out of my apartment complex and I can clearly see snow still hanging onto the Rocky Mountains. I’m also really intrigued by the flora and fauna of the area, that seems so different from the ecosystems I’m so used to. I even bought a used book on birding when I visited the bookstore in Boulder. It seemed like great coffee table material and I figured that birds might be a good place to start learning about Colorado’s critters.
I start my new job on Thursday, but I’m hopeful that over the course of the next couple days I can get outside a bit more and really start to find what the area has to offer! Stay tuned!
