On the day before I had to go back to Holland we drove back to Boulder. In Rifle, autumn had just come in, leaving the trees with amazing yellow and orange colors. It was pretty weird to see how this landscape changed once we got closer to Boulder. While we were driving through some great canyons, the autumn sun disappeared, temperatures dropped below zero and suddenly it started snowing! Arriving in Boulder we decided to do some training in the climbing gym, considering outdoor climbing was not really an option. The gym was great and I really enjoyed the steep walls, covered with holds I had never seen before. Afterwards we went into town, to see at least some of Boulder and have some dinner.
Next morning I had to wake up really early to catch my shuttle to the airport. After an amazing trip with many new experiences I felt really sorry that I had to leave the US already, but I have to say that it feels good to be at home again. After many weeks of travelling I will have some time to relax, train, catch up with my studies and see my friends and family now.
