The closer, paved road is a quarter mile stretch of the NCAR climb (heads up to the left then circles around and back near to my vantage point), with enchanted Mesa (the dirt switchback), Boulder, and North Boulder County in the distance. The NCAR climb is approximately 600 feet in 1 and 2/3 miles (depending on where you start). This is right in my back yard.
Everyone's journey should be different,
so that we all are enriched
in new and endless ways.
