Scenic landscape view of fresh fallen snow and dusted flatirons on the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder Colorado, Boulder County. Boulder has been referred to as the “Boulder Bubble” and “28 square miles surrounded by reality.”
Boulder’s Third Flatiron, which towers 1,400 feet high — a few hundred feet higher than the Empire State Building — has been climbed by people without using their hands, on roller skates, naked, and in 8 minutes (by separate climbers).
The Flatiron Mountains got their name by pioneer women who said they looked like flat, metal irons used to iron their clothes. Boulder is surrounded by more than 31,000 acres of recreational open space and nature preserves.
